Despite the fact that the whole mess surrounding Britain’s impending departure from the European Union hasn’t even been properly sorted out yet, there’s already a TV adaptation in the works about it.
Upcoming Channel 4 drama Brexit aims to unpack the often stranger-than-fiction true life story of the run up to the landmark vote into a one-off television drama. And this is actually much less of a hot mess than you might expect, given the subject matter.
The feature is being written by playwright Jason Graham. Black Mirror’s Toby Haynes is on board to direct. And they’ve tapped Benedict Cumberbatch to star in it.
Unfortunately, they've given him what is possibly the worst hairpiece in the world.
