British comedy drama starring James Nesbitt. American PR consultant Liz Garvey (Brit Marling) is recruited to the Metropolitan police as the new Director of Communications, tasked with improving their broken image. Things don't get off to a very good start, however, as she has to deal with her new boss Chief Constable Richard Miller (Nesbitt), her jealous, scheming assistant Finn (Bertie Carvel) and the bureaucracy of the whole organisation. Meanwhile, film-maker Matt Coward (Daniel Kaluuya) follows forces on the ground as they deal with serious and general public issues. Although, little do they know, he plans to release the footage as an exposé to shock the public and the police force into action.
