The Jack Irish series is based on the novels by Peter Temple and follows the eponymous character who is just getting his life back together again. A former criminal lawyer whose world imploded, he now spends his days as a part-time investigator, debt collector, apprentice cabinet maker, punter and sometime lover – the complete man really. An expert in finding those who don’t want to be found – dead or alive, Jack helps out his mates while avoiding the past. That is until the past finds him.
Jack Irish has no shortage of friends, but family members are short in supply. His wife was murdered by an ex-client and his father is a fading photo on the pub’s football wall of fame. So when Des Connors, the last link to his dad, calls to ask for help in the matter of a missing son, Jack is happy to lend a hand. But sometimes prodigal sons go missing for a reason. As Jack begins to dig, he discovers that Gary Connors was a man with something to hide. And his friends are people with darker and more deadly secrets. Jack Irish: Black Tide is produced by Essential Media & Entertainment in association with ABC TV, Screen Australia & Film Victoria and stars Guy Pearce, Aaron Pederson, Marta Dusseldorp, Shane Jacobson, Roy Billing, Damien Richardson, Lachy Hulme and Vadim Glowna.
