WOWOW PREMIERE: The Escape Artist
All three episodes from 2pm on Saturday April 26th (Episode 1 free-to-air)
London. The highly skilled criminal defence lawyer Will Burton has never lost a case, hence  the nickname of "the escape artist". He lives happily with his young son Jamie and wife Kate.
It falls to him to defend Liam, the suspect in an horrific murder. Will takes the case because of his belief that "everyone is entitled to a defence". But even he doubts whether Liam is really innocent. Will wins an acquittal due to errors in the evidence produced by the prosecutor.
Then, still suspicious that Liam is guilty of the murder, Will refuses to shake his hand. In the wake of this Liam begins relentlessly to target his family. Is Will helpless, or can he find a way to defend his family...?
