Award-winning comedian, writer, director and producer Armando Iannucci directs a new satirical comedy he describes as “Yes Minister meets Larry Sanders”.

Set in the corridors of power (and spin), the series follows the career of Hugh Abbot (Chris Langham), a put-upon MP continually harassed by Number 10’s policy enforcer (Peter Capaldi) and dependent on his not-so reliable team of civil servants.

Written by some of Britain’s top comic talents and shot in a gritty, improvised style, The Thick of It is compulsive, hilarious and often painful viewing.
