Article: SundanceTV Co-Producing New Scripted Original Series “BABYLON” – Executive Produced by Academy Award Winner Danny Boyle
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 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 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.
