Barristers from 25 Bedford Row will star in a new show with “unprecedented access” to legal lives.
In a four-part documentary, tentatively named The Defenders, a group of barristers from one of the UK’s top criminal defence chambers will be followed around on their daily lives.
The Defenders will show how the barristers work through cases – on anything from speeding fines and shop lifting to armed robbery and murder – from when they are given a brief to preparing for court and a final verdict.
The series will also go beyond the courts to explore their lives outside the law through families, friendships and hobbies.
Channel 4 plans to air the docu-series in Spring next year.
