Embarrassing mums, amateur theatre, closetted gay teens – The Family Law has it all! Matthew Galea asks writer Benjamin Law, where to next?

DNA: Congrats on season two! Was it always your plan to have a second season?

Benjamin Law: You have to be kind of smugly arrogant and just assume that season two is going to happen because when you’re developing season one there are plotlines where you think, “Oh, that’s a total season two thing.” So, you develop season one with season two hovering as a delicious prospect.

Is there a certain pressure to follow up season one’s success?

I guess so. The first season is still the most-watched comedy ever on SBS On Demand. They debuted the episode on Facebook before it went to air, which was an SBS first and it got over a million eyeballs on it. But for us in the writer’s room, we can’t get too worried about that. We just need to write the best show possible.
