DESCRIPTION:
(from Sundance Channel's press release, May 2014) SundanceTV announced today its next original scripted series "Babylon," which it is co-producing with UK broadcaster Channel 4. The drama is a biting workplace satire set inside a modern police force. The story revolves around an earnest executive who attempts to modernize the culture only to discover her certainties shattered and herself undermined in the murky realpolitik of contemporary policing. The series is executive produced by Academy Award(R) winner Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 28 Days Later, Trainspotting) and stars Brit Marling (Another Earth, Sound of My Voice) and James Nesbitt (The Hobbit, Millions). The series is penned by Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong (Peep Show, The Old Guys, Fresh Meat) and produced by Robert Jones (The Usual Suspects, Dirty Pretty Things) and Derrin Schlesinger (Southcliffe, Four Lions). It will premiere on SundanceTV in 2015. The series follows Liz Garvey (Marling), a new-media savvy American who's parachuted in to revolutionize the public relations department of London's largest police force. This series balances the clash of cultures and age, the embrace of transparency and technology and the strain of home and work life with a mix of drama and humor.
