Written by Guy Jenkins (Drop The Dead Donkey, Outnumbered), Hacks, released on DVD for the first time on 23rd January 2012, takes a satirical swipe at the recent momentous events in the British newspaper industry.
Delving into the seedy world of a fictional newspaper news room, where the pressure the get the next exclusive is intense, and the phrase 'by any means necessary' doesn't even cover it, Hacks takes recent news events as launch pad to imagine the goings-on behind the closed doors of the newspaper industry.
In Hacks, we meet tabloid editor Kate Loy (Claire Foy), who doesn't take any prisoners and proprietor, Stanhope Feast (Michael Kitchen) who demands Kate always gets the biggest stories first. But Kate's moral compass went awry a long time ago - something that's about to cause her major problems. As the scandal breaks and the net closes in on her, things get funnier for the viewer as things go from bad to worse for the characters...
Bringing together a cast of British heavyweights including Kayvan Novak, Nigel Planer, Phil Davis, Alexander Armstrong, Gordon Kennedy, Russ Abbott and Celia Imrie, Hacks will be available on DVD. Broadcast for the first time on New Year's Day on Channel 4, Hacks is released on DVD on 23rd January 2012.
