Shows You Might Have Missed: Flack
Each week, we take a look at some of our favourite offbeat shows that might not have made it onto your radar.
Step into the cutthroat world of a celebrity publicist in scandalous drama Flack.
For London based American publicity guru Robyn, public relations isn’t so much a job as it is a way of life – one that comes with its own rules, requirements and code of ethics.
Sleek, slick and seriously formidable, Robyn is in complete control when it comes to managing the scandals of her celebrity clients, stopping at nothing to ensure their reputations remain intact.
When it comes to her personal life, however, it’s a different matter – and with things falling apart afterhours, its only a matter of time before Robyn will reach breaking point.
A rare female anti-hero doing whatever it takes to keep her head – and those of her clients – above water, Robyn is iconic Kiwi actress Anna Paquin as you’ve never seen her before.
Joined by the likes of Sophie Okonedo (Doctor Who), Lydia Wilson (Misfits), Max Beesley (The Ordinary) Katherine Kelly (The Guilty), Alan Davies (Jonathan Creek), and Bradley Whitford (The West Wing), Flack is a whip-smart, darkly funny foray into the morally bankrupt world of public relations.
