Just Over 6 Years Ago, Benjamin Law’s “The Family Law” Debuted On SBS

A bit of a flashback and a blast from the not so distant past, but on January 14, 2016, The Family Law created by Benjamin Law debuted on SBS. It was a series based upon the book Law wrote about his childhood and family growing up Asian Australian and finding himself in the Sunshine Coast.

As a reminder, this is the main premise of the series:

The series follows the dysfunctional world of a Chinese-Australian family through the eyes of 14-year-old Benjamin Law. It is set on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland over a long, hot summer the family will never forget. The family consists of Benjamin Law, eldest sister Candy, older brother Andrew, younger sisters Tammy and Michelle and parents Jenny and Danny.

The Family Law ran for 3 seasons in 2016, 2017 and 2019. A series which showed great representation and visibility of Asian Australians – so congrats on the achievements the series has made!
