Full post on 3 x 30 min comedy series for BBC4

A Satirical comedy about a government whistle-blower and a millionaire internet entrepreneur trapped together in a London embassy. Inspired by the true stories of whistleblowers claiming asylum, we find our two protagonists Dan and Ludo under the threat of extradition, stuck in a fictional central-American embassy in London.

Dan Hern is a serious, self-important egotist who is accused of leaking important documents, while Ludo Backslash is a larger-than-life, childish hacker who set up a file-sharing website and became public enemy number one among the global entertainment community. They are very much the classic odd couple.
