The Thick of It

The Thick of It



Armando Iannucci's award-winning satirical comedy has been hailed as "inspired, seemingly effortless and far too close for comfort" and "very funny, simultaneously depressing and elating" (The Independent).

Set in the corridors of power and spin, the series follows the career of Hugh Abbot, the new Minister for Social Affairs, who is continually harassed by Number 10's policy enforcer and dependent on his not-so-reliable team of civil servants.

Written by some of Britain's top comic talents and shot in a gritty, improvised style, The Thick of It is compulsive, hilarious and often painful viewing.
