Announced in May, the series is described as “a spoof spy action-thriller series following the exploits of a top-secret team of special agents working for the British government and charged with saving the world.”

The show also stars Jim Howick (Horrible Histories, Broadchurch), Kayode Ewumi (Are You Being Served, #HoodDocumentary) and Laura Checkley (Cradle to Grave, Bridget Jones’s Baby).
