Starts Thursday, February 28 at 8.30pm AEST
The new original drama series stars Academy Award winner Anna Paquin and a celebrated ensemble cast.
Academy Award-winning actress Anna Paquin (The Piano, True Blood, X-Men) alongside a celebrated ensemble cast star in the brand new drama series Flack, with new episodes streaming every week from Thursday, February 28 and available to watch on FOX SHOWCASE on Thursdays at 8.30pm.
Set in London in the world of high-stakes public relations, the six-part series stars Paquin as the sharp and witty American PR agent Robyn, who is an expert at her craft but a complete self-saboteur when it comes to her personal life.
Flack centres around Robyn and her fellow PR “flacks” who must figure out how to make the best of bad situations and somehow manage to get out unscathed.
Directed by Academy Award nominee Peter Cattaneo (The Full Monty), the series features a stunning ensemble of female co-stars, including Academy Award nominee Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda), Genevieve Angelson (House of Lies), Lydia Wilson (Black Mirror) and Rebecca Benson (The Crown), as well as a strong lineup of supporting cast members Marc Warren (The Good Wife), Arinze Kene (Crazyhead), Rufus Jones (Episodes) and Max Beesley (Suits).
Flack is equal parts comedy and drama, reflecting the brutal reality and complexities of modern life, where problems can go viral in an instant – and with PR serving as the perfect backdrop to explore these complexities.
“Oliver Lansley has written six of the best scripts I’ve ever read. He walks that fine line between intense character-driven drama and exceptionally intelligent humour. My character, Robyn, exists in a world where there are no moral absolutes and humour is used as a sharply executed defence mechanism to maintain the illusion of perpetual control” said Paquin.
The series is created and executive produced by Oliver Lansley. It is a co-commission between UKTV in the UK and US network Pop TV and co-produced by Hat Trick Productions and Anna Paquin’s production company CASM Films.
