The true story of the life and crimes of Mary Ann Bugg – Lady Outlaw.
LADY OUTLAW is a 4 x 1hr Drama Series – an action-packed mini-series about a spirited and intelligent woman, who took her fate into her own hands and turned racial stereotypes on their head. Sassy and controversial, Mary Ann Bugg is a proud Worimi woman who dared the most incredible things for love, freedom and justice, with her husband Captain Thunderbolt - Australia’s longest reigning bushranger - and their outlaw family.
This is a long over-due historical story of a strong Indigenous woman that will have audiences on the edge of their seats while turning history on its head - Mary Ann is our super hero!Themodern approach to action drama and the western genre – with a rebel love story at its heart - will appeal to a broad mainstream Australian and international television audience who love action, history and adventure, skewing female.
It is time to break the silence and tell this story.
Producers: Lois Randall, Dena Curtis
