Ambassadors: Starts in November on BBC2
Matthew Macfadyen will be guest starring in the Ambassadors. Expect 3 episodes to start with!
BBC2, early November
David Mitchell and Robert Webb reunite as a newly arrived British ambassador and his jaded deputy at the British embassy of Tazbekistan. Their scramble to win business contracts from an under-resourced office in a country not noted for its human rights record should have satirical bite. Keeley Hawes and Tom Hollander also feature.
