Award winning writer/producer Sarah Lambert has worked extensively in both film and television in Australia, the US and UK. She is the Creator/Writer and a Producer of Love Child, the smash hit Australian drama. The first series was the number one drama in Australia in 2014 and it is now in its third season. Set in Sydney in 1969 at the height of the sexual revolution, the series follows a group of young women whose lives intersect at Kings Cross hospital and Stanton House, a home for unwed mothers.
“Lambert has beguilingly combined a detailed and often critical analysis of an Australia emerging slowly from the torpor and social repressiveness of the late 50’s with a plot abundantly full of surprise and suspense” – The Australian
