Over four seasons, Street Legal's slick Kiwi take on urban crime and law genres racked up a stack of award nominations - including a 2003 NZ TV Award for best drama series. Although initially wary that the Auckland setting might alienate viewers, writer Greg McGee chose a Samoan lawyer (Jay Laga'aia) as his main character, to exploit the show's inner-city Ponsonby setting (where cafe society bumps into Pacific Island immigrant culture). Other key characters included Silesi's lawyer ex-girlfriend Joni, and her new partner Kees, an overstressed sergeant.
