British TV network Channel 4 recently announced that a full six-episode season of the Brit Marling-starring police comedy series, Babylon, has been ordered.  Paterson Joseph and Daniel Kaluuya are set to co-star.

From Channel 4:

"Coppers. The Sweeney. Plods. The Old Bill. London’s police force – the oldest in the world – is in need of a public image revamp, and Chief Constable Richard Miller (Jimmy Nesbitt) has found just the woman to do it.

Introducing Liz Garvey (Brit Marling) – an American visionary from the world of new media, parachuted in to revolutionise a PR department struggling to keep up in an age of rolling news, smart phones and a news-breaking, information-hungry public.

Also running operations at police HQ are Commissioner Miller’s right-hand man Deputy Commissioner Charles Inglis (Paterson Joseph), loyal Staff Officer Tom Oliver (Jonny Sweet) and Liz’s second-in command, Finn (Bertie Carvel). Out on the streets Territorial Support Group (TSG) officers Davina (Jill Halfpenny) and Robbie (Adam Deacon) are tasked with upholding the peace – though Robbie would much rather be playing with the big boys of Specialist Firearms Command (SCO19), joining the likes Officer Neil (Andrew Brooke). Meanwhile they’re trailed by fly-on-the-wall TV cameraman Matt Coward (Daniel Kaluuya), desperate to capture some juicy footage at the heart of the action.

Razor-sharp and visually audacious, Babylon takes a wry look at the people and politics in the command rooms and on the frontlines of a modern police force, as it attempts to uphold the peace under constant scrutiny in one of the world’s busiest capital cities."

The pilot episode of Babylon will shoot in autumn this year for an early 2014 TX, with a 6-part series ordered for production next year. Babylon is commissioned by Piers Wenger, Channel 4’s Head of Drama, and is created and exec produced by Danny Boyle, Robert Jones (The Usual Suspects, Dirty Pretty Things), Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain, and produced by Jones and Derrin Schlesinger (This Is England ’86, Four Lions, Southcliffe).
