So topical it's not written yet… Starring Ben Miller, Hugh Dennis, Sarah Hadland and Kathleen Rose Perkins.
Broadcast during the climax of the May 2015 election the highly topical 5 x 30 min sitcom intercuts between the various campaign buses of the four main parties – Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat and UKIP.
