What will happen in Roadkill on BBC?

The series is a four-part thriller written by David Hare and produced by The Forge.

According to the BBC, the synopsis reveals the show will focus on Laurie’s Peter Laurence who is a “a self-made, forceful and charismatic politician.”

This reads: “Peter’s public and private life seems to be falling apart - or rather is being picked apart by his enemies.

“As the personal revelations spiral, he is shamelessly untroubled by guilt or remorse, expertly walking a high wire between glory and catastrophe as he seeks to further his own agenda whilst others plot to bring him down."

He continued: “However events show just how hard it is, for both an individual and a country, to leave the past behind.

“With enemies so close to home, can Peter Laurence ever out-run his own secrets to win the ultimate prize?”

Speaking about the new series, Hare revealed to the BBC how excited he was to work with Laurie again.

He said: “I first worked with Hugh Laurie in 1987 when he set off on his riveting change of direction from adroit comedian to commanding dramatic actor.

“I can’t wait to see him embody the fictional future of the Conservative party in Roadkill.”
