LES NORTON

6 x 60min Drama Mini-Series

Synopsis: Les Norton follows the exploits of a country boy who has escaped a troubled past to find himself in Sydney, working as a bouncer/fixer at the city’s most notorious illegal casino. A classic fish out of water, he soon finds himself seduced by the city’s illicit charms and dragged deeper into the web of underground criminality. Chaos and capers naturally ensue. It’s an irreverent love letter to Sydney and the decadence of the mid-‘80s, a period of tumultuous social transition that can be seen, in large part, as the gateway to contemporary Australia, all underscored by our national obsession with the blurry line between crime and civilian life.
