An engaging legal drama that chronicles the commitment to work ethics by Senior Crown Prosecutor King (Dusseldorp) who returns to work from maternity leave to find a very different DPP to the one she had left.

There's been a directive from the attorney-general for a closer working relationship with police and an unsettling interest in prosecutions is being taken by Chief Superintendent Jack Rizzoli (Colosimo).

On the other hand, DPP newcomer and ex-police prosecutor Owen Ramsey (Walshe-Howling) has no qualms about scoring a conviction - even by twisting the rules.

King is thrown into "a shocking prosecution", but is just as resolute in her stand to prove her competence.

Her first apparently forthright case worsens into a dreadful murder and as a result both she and the DPP solicitors are driven into an intricate web of dishonesty and treachery that shakes the judiciary, police and government to the heart.

It's inevitable that the truth will intimidate Janet's life, her career and her young family.

This eight-part Australian television series is a spin-off from the 2011 legal drama Crownies.
