The Family Law

The Family Law (2016)

The Family Law is a new six-part series created by critically acclaimed writer Benjamin Law and adapted from his hit 2010 memoir of the same name. This is the story of a quirky Chinese-Australian family on the Sunshine Coast over the course of a long hot summer, as told by 14-year old Benjamin, slightly self-obsessed with aspirations to be famous despite his severe lack of talent. For the Law family, all communication can lead to misunderstanding and unlikely comedy stems from tragedy. This is a show about sabotaged expectations, growing pains, finding your place in the world, and the strange embarrassment we feel towards the people we're supposed to love the most: our family.

Benjamin struggles with a crippling addiction to spying on Klaus pumping iron across the road and is riddled with anxiety over what it means.
