The razzle-dazzle PR sitcom is back with more sharp dresses and scabrous one-liners, and enough two-cheek kissing to make up for a year of social distancing’
‘Juicy celebrity scandals, countless funny and teary moments, and a lead character who seems determined to self-destruct’
‘Part Veep, part The Devil Wears Prada, and part Scandal…’
The queens of spin are back to help to fix those PR nightmares in W Channel’s darkly comic drama Flack which returns after its critically acclaimed first series gripped audiences last year. Flack Series 2 arrives on DVD thanks to Acorn Media International, alongside the Flack Series 1 and 2 DVD Box Set on 8 June 2020.
Juggling with Saturday evening TV presenters harbouring dark secrets and an elderly environmental celebrity who may or may not have got a bit too hands on, as well as a romantic tryst between a high profile couple and a sporting superstar that resulted in a baby… It’s all in a day’s work for Robyn (Anna Paquin – True Blood, X-Men) and the Mills Paulson PR agency.
Following the success of Scorsese’s The Irishman, Hollywood star Anna Paquin returns to the small screen as Robyn, the high-flying publicity guru at Mills Paulson PR, who can make her clients’ bad situations better with some expert spin, but when it comes to her own life things are never quite so straightforward.
Sophie Okonedo (Chimerica, Wanderlust) continues her reign as tyrannical boss Caroline, while hedonistic PR powerhouse Eve (Lydia Wilson – Requiem, Ripper Street) and naïve intern Melody (Rebecca Benson – Game of Thrones, The White Princess) are back for more crazy crisis management in the wild world of high stakes public relations.
And as well as wrestling with celebrities’ problems and issues, the staff at Mills Paulson have their own problems, there’s Robyn’s life changing situation, a face from the past returning and the threat of an ownership battle for the agency itself.
Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated actor Sam Neill (Jurassic Park, Peaky Blinders), joins the cast as Caroline’s ex Duncan, while guest stars include Jane Horrocks (Little Voice, Absolutely Fabulous) and Daniel Dae Kim (Lost, Hawaii Five-0).
