form y separately published work icon Good Guys, Bad Guys ( dir. Brendan Maher et. al. )agent 1997 Australia : Beyond Simpson Le Mesurier Nine Network , 1997-1998 Z1367327 1997 series - publisher film/TV crime

An edgy and off-beat crime series that relies heavily on humour, contemporary music, and a touch of the bizarre, centring on the character of Elvis Maginnis. An ex-cop from the wrong side of the tracks, Maginnis now runs his own dry-cleaning business but still finds himself drawn into the shady side of life.

1998 shortlisted Logie Awards Most Outstanding Series
form y separately published work icon Janus Criminal Justice ( dir. Michael Carson et. al. )agent Melbourne : Australian Broadcasting Corporation , 1994-1995 Z1937319 1994-1995 series - publisher film/TV crime

'It's a story about justice...and the corruption of justice. JANUS is about the lawyers, police, judges and magistrates who work with a very imperfect system. The focus of our story will be the new Director of Public Prosecutions Officer, taking over the handling of all Committals for trial - the first sweeping changes recommended by the Janus Taskforce Committee.'

1995 winner Logie Awards Most Outstanding Drama Series
form y separately published work icon Phoenix ( dir. Michael Carson et. al. )agent Melbourne : Australian Broadcasting Corporation , 1992-1993 Z1937404 1992-1993 series - publisher film/TV crime

'A hard-edged, gritty drama about the tense and claustrophobic world of a Major Crime Task Force set up to solve an urban terrorist bombing, a Task Force which brings together a crew of idiosyncratic, competitive characters over a knife edged maximum stressed two months. PHOENIX is no traditional cop shop or crime story. Its characters are not clean, super hero cops, just real police whose attitudes can be shocking and whose humour is grim and black.'
