Set in 1850s Australia, in the lively colony of Port Victory, Jack Dawkins is The Artful Dodger, whose fast, pickpocketing fingers have turned into the skilled hands of a surgeon. Dodger’s past returns to haunt him with the arrival of Fagin, luring him back into a world of crime. A greater threat – to Dodger’s heart – is Lady Belle, the Governor’s daughter, determined to become the colony’s first female surgeon. From heists to life- and-death surgeries, to the harsh realities of the criminal world mingling with the middle ground and gentry. This is a tale of reinvention, betrayal, redemption, and love with a twist.
The Artful Dodger is created by James McNamara, David Maher and David Taylor as a co-production with Sony Pictures Television’s Curio Pictures and produced by Beach Road Pictures. Jo Porter executive produces for Curio Pictures, along with Beach Road Pictures’ David Maher and David Taylor.
