3 x 1/2 hour
Satirical comedy drama from BAFTA award-winning actor and writer Kayvan Novak (Facejacker, Four Lions) inspired by the true stories of whistleblowers who have broken the rules and seeking asylum.
Dan Hern is a serious self-important egotist accused of leaking important CIA documents.
Ludo Backslash is a larger than life, childish hacker who became public enemy number one among the global entertainment community.
Dan and Ludo have one thing in common - they are both holed up in the fictional 'El Rico' Embassy in London, facing extradition. To Dan's dismay, the pair are forced to share the tiny basement storage room which they call home, and must manoeuvre the perilous world of CIA schemes, international press conferences and M16 honey-traps in this playfully satirical comedy drama from a multi-award winning team.
