If you forgot about “Babylon,” don’t worry —we did too. It was nearly a year ago when the UK’s Channel 4 debuted the pilot episode of the show, directed by none other than Danny Boyle, and in our B-grade review, we noted the show had a lot of potential. Evidently, the network thought so too, and a first season was commissioned and shot earlier this year, and so a trailer for the first season is here.
Featuring a great cast including Brit Marling, James Nesbitt, Paterson Joseph (aka Wayne from “The Leftovers“) among others, the comedy/drama follows an American PR adviser who is hired to clean up the image of the London Metropolitan Police Department. And as you might guess, sparks fly.
Jon Baird (“Filth“) and filmmaker Sally El Hosaini (“My Brother The Devil“) take over directing duties, and it looks like the qualities that landed the show on our 22 Most Anticipated Shows For The Rest Of 2014. are intact. “Babylon” arrives in the U.K. on November 13th. No word yet on when it will cross the pond.
