"Spin is dead, long live PR."
Stephen Fry and John Bird star in this hilarious BBC satire set in the cynical world of public relations – where truth is an optional extra and no job is too grubby, so long as it pays well...
A re-working of Mark Tavener's acclaimed Radio 4 comedy series, Absolute Power sees Fry and Bird as Charles Prentiss and Martin McCabe – spinmeisters supreme who run their own top London PR consultancy.
Whether keeping celebrity clients in or out of the tabloids, saving MPs from political oblivion or sugar-coating unpopular government schemes, Prentiss approaches his campaigns with sophistry, cynicism and a withering sarcasm. Occasionally reined in by his older, world-wearier and less amoral partner, the Machiavelli of Prentiss McCabe presides over an office of youthful executives that include the bright but dangerously honest Alison – and Jamie, an equally devious Prentiss-in-waiting.
With punchy, sometimes controversial scripts and guest turns from Geoffrey Palmer, Rebecca Front, Tim Brooke-Taylor and John Sessions, this set comprises both acclaimed series.
