Press is an ambitious new contemporary series set in the world of newspapers: its past riven by hacking scandals, its present at the mercy of the digital age and the 24-hour news cycle, its future uncertain. This razor sharp and observant drama from Mike Bartlett (Doctor Foster, Charles III) will explore the turbulent media landscape through the fortunes of competing broadsheet and tabloid papers and the very different and colourful characters who work for them.

“From exposing political corruption to splashing on celebrity scandal, editors and journalists have enormous influence over us, yet recent events have shown there’s high-stakes and life-changing drama going on in the news organisations themselves.”
