The Bad Seed

5 x 60 mins

South Pacific Pictures for TVNZ 1, New Zealand

There are deep rooted secrets in every family.

Based on the books by best-selling NZ author Charlotte Grimshaw. Brothers Simon and Ford Lampton come from a dysfunctional family with a dark history. Simon has escaped his past to become a successful obstetrician, living in the best part of town with the seemingly perfect family. Older brother Ford, once estranged and still rough around the edges, is staying in the spare room and appears to be the only disruption to Simon’s controlled life. But when Simon’s neighbour is murdered, the investigation draws the household into a hurricane of scandal.
