About the show

Jackson's Wharf returns for series 2. A year on since widower Ben returned to Jackson's Wharf, and the youngest Jackson brother, Calvin is in prison, charged with the murder of missing teenager, Chantelle Judd. Frank is convinced of his innocence, Ben is convinced he needs a damn good lawyer. And that sums up the difference between them.

Mention the name Jackson on Kaupapa Peninsula, and any local will nod sagely - then ask which one you're after. Jackson is a name that's been part of this community since 1844.  Jackson's Wharf is a small coastal town about two hours from the nearest city.

Local police sergeant Frank Jackson rules the community roost, and things around Jackson's Wharf are usually done his way. But when his hot-shot brother Ben moves his children back to the town, the sibling rivalry between the pair threatens to affect everyone around them.
