SundanceTV has announced 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 series is executive produced by Academy Award 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).
