New comedy/drama series Flack starring Academy Award-winning actress Anna Paquin and a celebrated ensemble cast star will premiere on FOX SHOWCASE later this month.

Set in London in the world of high-stakes public relations, the six-part series stars Paquin as the sharp and witty American PR agent Robyn, who is an expert at her craft but a complete self-saboteur when it comes to her personal life. Flack centres around Robyn and her fellow PR “flacks” who must figure out how to make the best of bad situations and somehow manage to get out unscathed.

Directed by Academy Award nominee Peter Cattaneo (The Full Monty), the series features a stunning ensemble of female co-stars, including Academy Award nominee Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda), Genevieve Angelson (House of Lies), Lydia Wilson (Black Mirror) and Rebecca Benson (The Crown), as well as a strong lineup of supporting cast members Marc Warren (The Good Wife), Arinze Kene (Crazyhead), Rufus Jones (Episodes) and Max Beesley (Suits).

Flack is equal parts comedy and drama, reflecting the brutal reality and complexities of modern life, where problems can go viral in an instant – and with PR serving as the perfect backdrop to explore these complexities.

Episode 1 of FLACK streams from Thursday, February 28 and screens on FOX SHOWCASE at 8.30pm with new episodes added each week
