The show focuses on the former Head of the Olympic Deliverance Commission, Ian Fletcher (Hugh Bonneville), as he begins his new role as Head of Values at the BBC.

His task is to clarify, define, or re-define the core purpose of the BBC across all its functions and to position it confidently for the future.

As Licence Fee Renogotiation and Charter Renewal approaches, he is joined by a number of BBC colleagues on his journey to the centre of something genuinely important… as soon as they can figure out what that something is.

Also along for the ride is fellow Twenty Twelve star and Spaced legend Jessica Hynes, who returns as Head of Branding, Siobhan Sharpe.  She is joined by Sarah Parish (Cutting It, Atlantis), Jason Watkins (Being Human, Psychoville), Monica Dolan (Sightseers), David Westhead (The Lakes), Ophelia Lovibond (F.M.) and Nina Sosanya (F.M., Nathan Barley, Last Tango In Halifax).

Rufus’ character is David Wilkes, Entertainment Format Producer – described as an enthusiastic creative who hopes to change the face of Sunday night television for better or worse with his next big format: Britain’s Tastiest Village.

We can’t wait – and thankfully, we won’t have to for long.  The show airs on March 19th at 10:00pm on BBC Two, and will be available on iPlayer shortly after transmission.

In the meantime, you can see an interview with Hugh Bonneville about the show, featuring sneaky peeks at the show itself, below.
