Babylon

TV-Pilot | UK 2014 | 75' | OV

With total public surveillance fast approaching and videos of police violence making the rounds on the Internet, police work is profoundly changing, as is the way the guardians of order are dealing with the public. Told in the humorous and energetic fashion Danny Boyle is known for, the TV series BABYLON is an examination of these changes throughout the hierarchy of the London Police, from officers on the beat all the way up to the Chief Commissioner. London’s top cop has just hired a young PR specialist from the United States – her Internet-inspired notions of transparency quickly test the boundaries of the police force’s established ways, which are often secretive for good reason. Comical touches in the treatment of this complex subject matter also come from writers Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain, whose terrorist comedy FOUR LIONS already proved their fearlessness.
