Watch The Hilarious First Trailer For Benjamin Law’s New SBS Show ‘The Family Law’

This is going to be GREAT.

Australian public-broadcast TV is in a pretty good place at the moment. Josh Thomas’ Please Like Me has been a surprise hit with the US market, picking up an Emmy nomination last year and moving up to ABC1 in July. The memoir/confessional has been a winning formula for Thomas, and now another young Aussie, Frankie writer and bestselling author Benjamin Law, is getting a family coming-of-age comedy all his own.

Based on the critically acclaimed memoir of the same name, The Family Law is a guide to the sprawling, eccentric and mildly dysfunctional Law family, told from the perspective of a young Benjamin going up in suburban Queensland in the ‘8os and ’90s.

The Family Law had a special screening of its first two episodes at Parliament House last night, and judging from Law’s Twitter, it went pretty dang well.

An official release date hasn’t been announced yet, but The Family Law is due to hit screens sometime in early 2016.
