Danny Boyle‘s new TV comedy drama Babylon has released its first cast photo.
The series for Channel 4 stars Brit Marling, James Nesbitt, Paterson Joseph, Jill Halfpenny, Adam Deacon, Daniel Kaluuya and Jonny Sweet, who are shown in character in the publicity snap.
Babylon follows London’s police force trying to revamp its image with the help of a new PR visionary from the US, played by Brit, who has been brought in by the Chief Constable, played by James.
The team are also filmed by a fly-on-the-wall documentary maker as they try to uphold law and order on the streets of London.
Babylon has been written by Peep Show, Fresh Meat and Four Lions writers Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain.
Piers Wenger, Channel 4’s head of drama, said: “We’re massively indebted to the team for the huge flair with which they have cast this series.
“There’s talent and originality in every corner of this cast and it’s going to be a thrill to see this company of actors rising to the challenges of Sam and Jesse’s brilliant script.”
Babylon’s pilot will screen early this year with a six-part series following later.
