What To Watch Tonight: ‘Babylon’ Premieres on SundanceTV

Babylon
10PM on SundanceTV. “Six part Sundance original series (a co-production with the UK’s Channel 4) comes from filmmaker Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) as well as Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong, the pair behind the long-running UK cult comedy Peep Show. This workplace satire—where the workplace in question involves the highest levels of London’s police force—stars Brit Marling and James Nesbitt.” Babylon has gotten mixed reviews from critics. Variety‘s Brian Lowry writes that the title is “symbolic of the chaos that reigns both within the department and in dealings with its various constituencies, from the public to city hall — and of the tendency of different groups of people to speak past each other.”
