The new five-part drama series, Better, from the producers of Chernobyl and This Is Going To Hurt, premieres 14 March on BINGE, with all five-episodes dropping at once.
The fast-paced thriller, starring BAFTA-nominated Leila Farzad (I Hate Suzie) as DI Lou Slack and Andrew Buchan (Broadchurch) as Col McHugh, explores the complex and powerful bonds of loyalty and family, set in a world where everyone has their own version of “right” and “wrong”.
Examining the power of human conscience, we follow DI Lou Slack’s (Farzad) epic battle towards redemption, by bringing down Col McHugh (Buchan); the man she has come to love like a brother and the man she has helped place at the head of Leeds criminal underworld. But while Col is a dangerous enemy to make, Lou’s biggest battle may yet be with herself.
Better is executive produced by Mona Qureshi and Nawfal Faizullah for the BBC and Jane Featherstone (This is Going to Hurt, Chernobyl, The Split), Chris Fry (Landscapers, Giri/Haji, Humans), Lucy Dyke (The Split, Black Mirror, Eric), Jonathan Brackley and Sam Vincent for SISTER in association with Northern Sister. Jonathan Brough (The End, Rosehaven) serves as lead director. The international distribution of the series will be handled by All3Media International.
