Ambassadors (formerly known as Our Men), BBC Two’s new 3 episode dramedy starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb, will premiere on Wednesday October 23rd at 9pm, it has been announced.
Written by James Wood and Rupert Walters, Ambassadors follows the lives and loves of the British Embassy team in Tazbekistan, one of the ex-Soviet ‘Stans’. The series follows Keith Davis (David Mitchell), the newly appointed British Ambassador of Tazbekistan – ambitious, he intends to make his mark in this posting. Standing beside him is Neil Tilly, Deputy Head of Mission (Robert Webb). While Davis is out representing Britain, Neil is in the Embassy pulling the levers and managing the staff. It’s a tough posting where they are far more likely to be drinking lethal vodka in the President’s hunting yurt than having G&Ts on the lawn. The dramedy series is produced by Big Talk Productions and stars David Mitchell, Robert Webb, Keeley Hawes, Susan Lynch, Yigal Naor, Amara Karan, Natalia Tena and Debbie Chazen.
