Featuring dialogue that crackles and nuanced performances, this is an exciting riff on the police genre, going behind the scenes at the highest (and the lowest!) levels of the force, especially as they confront the knock-on effects of social media and cut-throat PR and marketing. Our entry point into this work is Liz Garvey (Brit Marling) - 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, which is often at odds with the traditional efforts of the status quo staff. As events start to build up, be it a prison riot, a serial killer on the loose, or an improvised and ill-timed comment to the press by the Chief of Police, the internal back-biting begins and Liz’s vision for the future of the world’s oldest police service faces its greatest challenge. Not only has Liz the job of managing the fall out of these events on a daily basis, she has to convince her colleagues to change their traditional ways. The world of modern policing is a place where the chaos and danger on the streets is mirrored by the organized chaos and ruthless behaviour in the corridors of Police HQ.
