DESCRIPTION: (from Sundance Channel's press release, November 2014) SundanceTV announced today its next original scripted series, "Babylon," a co-production with Nightjack Ltd and Channel 4, will debut on Thursday, January 8, 2015 at 10 PM ET/PT. The six-part comedy-drama is a biting workplace satire set inside a modern police force. Starring indie darling Brit Marling (Another Earth, Sound of My Voice, The East) and James Nesbitt (The Hobbit, The Missing), the story revolves around an earnest PR executive who attempts to modernize London's law enforcement culture only to discover her certainties shattered and herself undermined in the murky realpolitik of contemporary policing. London's police force - the oldest in the world - is in need of a public image revamp. And Chief Constable Richard Miller (Nesbitt) has found just the woman to do it - Liz Garvey (Marling). She's an American visionary from the world of new media parachuted in to revolutionize the force's PR department. In an age of rolling news, smart phones and an information-hungry public, Liz preaches transparency and honesty.
