Meet Robyn, a sharp and witty high-flying publicity guru who can make her clients’ bad situations better with some expert spin, but when it comes to her own life things aren’t quite so straightforward.
Hollywood star Anna Paquin (The Piano, True Blood, X-Men) takes the lead in Flack, a brand-new darkly comedic drama that delves deep into the wild world of high stakes public relations. Recently airing on W Channel it’s out now on DVD from Acorn Media International and we have copies to win.
Robyn is a senior publicist at Mills Paulson PR, under the tyrannical, but awe-inspiring boss Caroline, played with relish by Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda, Wanderlust, Chimerica). Then there’s the rest of the team: the tirelessly hedonistic yet brilliant PR powerhouse Eve, in a hilarious turn by Requiem’s Lydia Wilson, and the endlessly willing intern, Melody (Rebecca Benson – Game of Thrones).
Damage limitation is Robyn’s game, as she’s tasked with babysitting her clients and dealing with a litany of scandals that threaten their careers. Whether it’s bringing a footballer’s hook-up back from an overdose, saving a teenage pop singer’s career with a fake sex-tape, rescuing a comedian’s sell-out tour after an ill-judged performance that’s gone viral, or the influencer who needs to borrow a baby, Robyn and the agency will do anything to keep their clients’ reputations intact.
But while she can help others through complicated liaisons and problems, Robyn’s own life is as tangled as her clients’, from the odd dalliance with high profile contacts through to a devoted boyfriend at home keen to start a family.
The team at Mills Paulson are joined by an all-star cast of familiar faces, with guests including Alan Davies, Rufus Jones, Marc Warren, Max Beesley, Darren Boyd and Bradley Whitford.
Get ready for the head-spinning world of Flack.
