Producers of Van Diemen’s Land launch new police series

Press Release from Jameson PR

It’s been too long since we’ve had an on screen cop hero willing to shoot someone down for breaking the law – any law, and the wait will soon be over with the launch of Cop Hard, a brand new cop entertainment show that crashes Hill Street Blues with Twin Peaks and Monty Python; that pulls no punches and cuts to the very heart of what it is to be good cop in a world of bad crime.


Having grown up on the mean streets of Brooklyn, writer/director Charles C. Custer peels away the veneer of lies and uncovers a true depiction of crime fighting never before seen. He invites us into a world that is both hard and cruel but has the decency to provide a true hero in the form of Detective Larry Hard (Mark “The Muscle” Winter).

A symbol of hope in these dark times of democracy. Larry is on the hustle of mean streets, back door pushers and front yard strippers. Something has to give, but it won’t be the man at the front of this thin blue line.

Hard cop, tough cop, Larry Hard is more cop than an old doughnut next to a dead hooker. In a city more desperate than Hollywood, Larry Hard doesn’t want to know the difference between good and bad, that’s for the courts to decide.

Cop Hard, an exciting new weekly web series from the producers of Van Diemen’s Land, will launch this Friday, February 17th. Melbournites will be the first to view the show when it is unveiled at an all-in party at Bella Union, Trades Hall, Carlton, to be attended by the cast and crew. Entry is free, and guests will be treated to a sneak peek at two webisodes of Cop Hard.

The rest of the world can see episode one of Cop Hard at midnight AEST this Friday, then a new webisode will be posted at this address every Friday at noon AEST.
