NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 13/05/2016

A drama series based on the life and career of the late high-profile criminal lawyer Mike Bungay is being made.

Dear Murderer has won $3.95 million of funding from NZ on Air.

The series of five one-hour programmes will be made by Screentime New Zealand for TV One.

"Audiences will delight in the Dear Murderer story about one of the most flamboyant and outrageous men in New Zealand legal history," NZ on Air says.

NZ On Air is an independent New Zealand broadcast funding agency.

Mr Bungay died in 1993. During his career the Wellington-based lawyer was involved in as many as 100 homicide cases, many of which were high profile.
