The first trailer for director Danny Boyle’s upcoming U.K. TV series Babylon has landed online. Created by Peep Show scribes Sam Bains and Jesse Armstrong, the cop comedy centers on an American new media expert (Brit Marling) who is hired to aid the PR of the London police department. Boyle directed the pilot for the show, and judging by this trailer it looks a bit like In the Loop by way of Boyle’s kinetic filmmaking style. There’s a solid amount of humor to be found, but it’ll be interesting to see how much that is balanced with the more dramatic aspects of, you know, people dying.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The show also stars James Nesbitt. The pilot premieres on Channel 4 in the U.K. on February 9th with the full six-episode first season to follow later this year.
