The show explores criminal barrister-turned police informer Nicola Gobbo, whose story was first revealed to the public in reporting by the Herald Sun during which she was referred to as Lawyer X. Gobbo was tied up in the Melbourne gangland killings and her involvement has resulted in questions around the incarceration of some of Australia’s most notorious gangsters. Several actors from the Underbelly franchise reprised their roles in the Informer 3838 series.
