This is a political satire with a London inner city twist.

In this mockumentary/drama series we follow stereotypical inner city characters who are parodies of real life political figures.
We witness as they enact policies, break promises, lie, cheat and stab each other in the backs for personal gain, all while the people they claim to represent suffer the consequences.

Surely this isn't how politics work???

Cameroonian Dave MD

This role requires someone who can portray a natural, charismatic leader, loved by most but equally feared by those who hate him. -- Dave is a Prime Minister type figure, a coveted position that is constantly under threat from rivals as well as those closest to him.
Whilst trying to appease a disgruntled general public and at the same time fend off his rivals, Dave takes a big gamble that will either solve all his problems or cost him everything.

Males, aged 18 to 25 from United Kingdom

Melissa Cramer MD

For this role you will need a wide range as you will be expected to flawlessly pull off a cool, calm and collective persona and yet switch to a ferocious, forceful and fiery temperament at the drop of a hat. -- In a world of men with huge egos and little sense Melissa has battled her way to one of the top positions in her field. But with those above her about to make a very serious mistake can she convince them to see things her way in order to save everything she has worked so hard to attain?

Females, aged 20 to 35 from United Kingdom

Morris Thompson MD

We are looking for a larger than life character; possessing a speaking voice and tone that is commanding, confident and crowd grabbing is key for this role. -- Morris holds a high position but his eyes are set on the very top. There is no lie he won't tell, no friend he won't betray and no back he won't stab in his quest to achieve his goals. With Dave about to make such a risky move Morris sees this as the opportunity he has been waiting for.

But for his scheme to work he first has to deal with the numerous members of his own camp who are willing to betray him in a heartbeat.

Dee Trapper MD

This role requires someone to portray a comically incompetent character who believes they are more intelligent than they are; once again a great sense of humour will work well with this role -- As part of the opposition Dee has a very important role but she also has a severe level of ineptitude, which makes her totally unqualified.
