Brodie-Sangster plays a grown-up Jack Dawkins, aka the Artful Dodger, who “has transferred his fast fingers as a pickpocket to the nimble skilled fingers of a surgeon” in 1850s Australia. But “Dodger’s past returns to haunt him with the arrival of Fagin,” played by Fargo veteran David Thewlis, “luring him back into a world of crime.” Maia Mitchell (Good Trouble) co-stars as Lady Belle Fox, the Governor’s daughter who is “determined to become the colony’s first female surgeon.”

The eight-episode series is “a tale of reinvention, betrayal, redemption, and love with a twist,” with Damon Herriman (Justified), Miranda Tapsell (Wolf Creek) and Tim Minchin (Californication) leading the supporting cast. James McNamara, David Maher and David Taylor serve as co-creators.
