Following the success of their 2015 election comedy Ballot Monkeys, Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin (Ballot Monkeys, Outnumbered, Drop the Dead Donkey) return to Channel 4 with a six-part satire lampooning the fictional communications and social media ‘experts’ on both sides of the EU referendum, as well as taking audiences a few doors down from the Kremlin and into the imagined world of Donald Trump’s campaign plane.
Spin-off from the highly acclaimed comedy series Ballot Monkeys, following both sides of the EU referendum, along with prominent international politicians on Donald Trump's campaign plane and inside Vladimir Putin's Presidential office. Creators Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin highlight the follies and foibles of contemporary politics, writing much of the show in the hours leading up to transmission.
With just over a week until the vote, tensions are high in the EU referendum camps. In the Unity Unit, the PM is coming to visit and Ruby is making cheesecake, while the Brexit team are suspicious about Malgosia. Oleg reminisces about Angela Merkel, and the Trump team attempt to woo the women.
With one day left for the EU Referendum camps to sway the waverers, Unity Unit's Sara tries to manage conflict, and in the Brexit camp, Jackie wants to be eaten by eagles. Meanwhile, Brett is practising his best interpretative flamenco, and Team Putin are putting world leaders in their place.
The referendum results are in and the UK's fate has been decided, leaving Tony keen to begin the healing process. Preeya departs into government and the David Cameron fudge morphs into a sad metaphor. Aboad Trump's plane, Bea and the team are in operation damage control, while over in the Kremlin, Oleg is in operation elk control.
The dust has settled in both EU referendum camps. Spencer is now scolding the Premier League and zigzag haircuts, while Tony endeavours to save his marriage... to the Tory party.
