Synopsis


Maverick man of the law
Filled with wit, lust and moral dilemmas, this five part mini-series tells the amazing true story of notorious criminal barrister, Mike Bungay.
 
In a high-profile career spanning decades, hard-drinking man of the law Mike Bungay represents defendants in New Zealand’s most controversial murder trials. A loveable rogue with a flamboyant, daring style, the legal establishment are dismayed at his meteoric rise, his penchant for fast cars, married women and whisky, and his run-ins with the police. Bungay’s messy personal life is a revealing counterpoint to his professional success. His notion of justice requires him to give his all for his clients, whether they’re suspected spies, gang leaders or child killers. He bends the rules to the limit, accepting the occasional slap in the face, but there’s no escaping his own inner demons.
