SundanceTV is joining U.K. broadcaster Channel 4 as co-producer on the Danny Boyle police PR drama series “Babylon”. A feature-length pilot was already shot with a six-episode first series due out later this year.

The story centers on an earnest executive (Brit Marling) who attempts to modernize the image of the British police force only to discover her certainties shattered and herself undermined in the murky realpolitik of New Scotland Yard. [Source: The Live Feed]
