Meet Robyn, a sharp and witty high-flying publicity guru who can make her clients’ bad situations better with some expert spin, but when it comes to her own life things aren’t quite so straightforward.
Hollywood star Anna Paquin takes the lead in Flack, the acclaimed darkly comedic drama that delves deep into the wild world of high stakes public relations. Following its run on W Channel the series is now available on DVD and we have 25 copies up for grabs thanks to Acorn Media International.
Robyn is a senior publicist at Mills Paulson PR, under the tyrannical, but awe-inspiring boss Caroline, played with relish by Sophie Okonedo. Then there’s the rest of the team: the tirelessly hedonistic yet brilliant PR powerhouse Eve, in a hilarious turn by Requiem’s Lydia Wilson, and the endlessly willing intern, Melody (Rebecca Benson).
Damage limitation is the game, as Robyn is tasked with babysitting her clients and dealing with a litany of scandals that threaten their careers, she and the agency will do anything to keep their clients’ reputations intact.
But while she can help others through complicated liaisons and problems, Robyn’s own life is as tangled as her clients’, from the odd dalliance with high profile contacts through to a devoted boyfriend at home keen to start a family.
Get ready for the head-spinning world of Flack.
