Claudia Karvan on playing a 40-something with authority in 'Newton's Law'

Claudia Karvan in 'Newton's Law'..

How did you get involved in Newton.s Law?.

I think they originally wrote it for Miriam Margolyes. She was originally devised as an old, fat Jewish woman (laughs). I've never worked with them before so I don't know how I came on their radar. I was a big admirer of the film Mallboy.that Fiona [Eagger] produced a long time ago. It's one of my favourite Australian films. It really packs a punch..

I've never heard of it.

It's really worth checking out. I loved it. And then, obviously, [I.m] a big fan of SeaChange and totally appreciate the extraordinary phenomena that is Miss Fisher, and what successful producers they are. They just approached me, I read it, we had a few conversations and then it was all happening. I really wanted to play a character who was emotionally intelligent and had authority and »

Newton's Law: it's light and sweet – but maybe that's what we need right now | Lauren Carroll Harris

The ABC’s new comedy-drama starring Claudia Karvan as a relatable Melbourne barrister is a welcome break from TV’s parade of dysfunctional antiheroes

If you’ve been waiting for a buck against the trend of “difficult” television, you’ll be happy with Newton’s Law. Pitched as a softer, sweeter Rake meets SeaChange, the show is exactly what you’d expect from a weeknight ABC legal family drama from SeaChange’s creator.

Our everyday heroine, Claudia Karvan’s Josephine Newton, is at a crossroads: trial-separating from her partner, taking up a job at a commercial law firm and maintaining her own smaller practice to keep helping the little guys. About two steps away from a sitcom with a laugh track, each episode – at least, the first two I’ve previewed – is structured around both a legal case and a personal drama. The supporting cast – including the lovely and familiar »

Neil Triffett on the set of 'Newton's Law'.

Emo the Musical director Neil Triffett spent the tail-end of 2016 as an attachment on TV series Newton.s Law, starring Claudia Karvan and produced by Miss Fisher.s Deb Cox and Fiona Eagger..

Triffett.s placement was organised through Film Vic.s attachment scheme.

.He.s had a smorgasbord,. says Eagger, talking to If mid-shoot last year. .He sat in a lot of meetings. Because he's around for the whole shoot and he's been doing some behind the scenes for us, he's sort of become part of the furniture and as a consequence I think got great access..

.The production pays for part of his wage, and he has days where he does behind the scenes and days where he's purely a director's attachment. He also gets the opportunity to direct — he's just shot a scene for us...

Eagger is no stranger to the scheme, »

How.s Newton.s Law going?

We.re in the middle of a 12-week shoot. Deb [Cox] and I just went to Mipcom and you pay dearly for taking [time off]. We went and came back within a week but a lot of things stockpile.

Did you go there to show footage from the show?

Yeah, ABC Commercial is distributing the show for rest of world, and we did a little Mipcom teaser trailer. It's not our official trailer because not all the material had been shot. And then Deb and I obviously had some meetings with the people they wanted us to. Just to meet some of the North American platforms and talk about what »
