King Con

2 x 60 minutes/1 x 90 minutes for Seven Network Australia, Channel 5 UK, Paramount+ (2023)

Hamish McLaren is one of the most successful con men of all time. Throughout a 30 year career he scammed unsuspecting girlfriends, high profile businessmen, acquaintances and best friends out of more than $60 million… and that’s just the people who came forward. Experts have called him a psychopath, lacking in empathy and compassion. This limited 2 part series hears first-hand from the people he targeted as they deal with the betrayal and devastation suffered at the hands of the ‘charming and flamboyant’ Hamish… and how Tom Zadravec, a young police detective, forensically tracked what Hamish was really up to and then brought him down.
