  • Imagine a world in which a ruthless and charismatic politician—untroubled by guilt or remorse—dances on the high wire between glory and catastrophe, while rivals plot to bring him down. Award-winning actor and comedian Hugh Laurie (House, Veep, Jeeves & Wooster) sweeps all unhelpful facts away in his star role as Peter Laurence, a morally challenged conservative MP whose public and private lives start to crumble under his enemies’ attacks. How will Prime Minister Dawn Ellison (Helen McCrory, Peaky Blinders, The Queen) react when Peter effortlessly blurs the line between morality and power? A must-see, four-part miniseries. 4 hours on 2 Discs SDH

  • Peter Laurence (Hugh Laurie, House, Veep) is a political outsider who is very popular with the people. Fresh from a successful libel case against a journalist printing stories alleging corruption, he's a man on the rise. But Peter has plenty of skeletons in his closet. And soon he discovers another: an illegitimate daughter serving a prison sentence. It's a secret that could ruin him. And one, apparently, that his Prime Minister (Helen McCrory) already knows.

    But Peter is a risktaker. With his career balanced on a knife edge, he pushes on fearlessly with his own, divisive brand of common-sense libertarianism. As he goes out on a political limb, his problems mount. His daughter uncovers his marital infidelity and his family threatens to implode. His charm and charisma can smooth over anything. But Peter may have ignored the consequences of his actions for too long. The journalist he humiliated in court is now on a mission, and this time Peter may not be able to talk his way out of it.
