Richard Roxburgh (Moulin Rouge!, Van Helsing) is Cleaver Greene, a brilliant barrister battling self-destructive tendencies in this hit Australian comedy-drama. As a lawyer, Cleaver prefers to defend those who are utterly hopeless and probably guilty; his clients include murderers, bigamists, and even cannibals. In his personal life, he dodges debt collectors and the Tax Office, while pining after a former prostitute (Adrienne Pickering, The Reef) and flirting with his best friend’s wife (Danielle Cormack, Wentworth). Despite his roguish ways, Cleaver’s wit and charm have won him many cases and loyal friends over the years. Guest stars in this “smart, cheeky, and funny legal series” (Newcastle Herald, Australia) include Oscar® nominee Rachel Griffiths (Brothers & Sisters), Hugo Weaving (The Lord of the Rings films), Sam Neill (Jurassic Park), and Noah Taylor (Game of Thrones).
After single-handedly causing the breakdown of Australian-Chinese diplomacy, Cleaver is evicted, and Jakub calls in his debt. To further complicate matters, Fuzz returns home and runs into Missy, while Nicole faces legal problems.
