Synopsis:

Struggling to cope with a heavy workload, government minister Hugh Abbott is just kept afloat by his team of spin doctors.

BSG Review: Very smart, clever, unique and funny; the two short series of this ad-libbed political satire hit close to the truth and are very funny - the show has won a decent following and some awards already. A great mix between " Yes, Minister " and "Curb Your Enthusiasm".
Notes: 10 new episodes have been commissioned.
