W1A trailer

From the team that brought us Twenty Twelve, a BBC series poking fun at itself

If you loved the multi-BAFTA-winning series Twenty Twelve then W1A, also from the pen of John Morton, will be right up your street.

With the London Olympic Games of 2012 successfully delivered, W1A follows former Head of the Olympic Deliverance Commission, Ian Fletcher, as he takes over as the new Head of Values at the BBC.

His task is to clarify, define or redefine the core purpose of the BBC across all its functions and to position it confidently for the future. Ian will be joined by a number of other BBC colleagues who will join him on the journey towards Licence Fee Renegotiation and Charter Renewal.

The series takes its name from the postcode area in which BBC Broadcasting House resides.

Here’s the official BBC trailer.

Hugh Bonneville plays Ian Fletcher, Jessica Hynes plays Siobhan Sharpe, Sarah Parish plays Anna Rampton, Jason Watkins plays Simon Harwood, Monica Dolan plays Tracey Pritchard, David Westhead plays Neil Reid, Nina Sosanya plays Lucy Freeman, Rufus Jones plays David Wilkes, Hugh Skinner plays Will Humphries, Ophelia Lovibond plays Izzy Gould, Jonathan Bailey plays Jack Patterson, and Max Olesker and Iván Gonzalez play Ben Rosenstern and Jerry Guildencrantz. (How very Hamlet …)

W1A starts on BBC2 on Wednesday 19th March.
