Roadkill on PBS linear boasts a fantastic cast and a timely subject. Hugh Laurie plays smooth conservative politician Peter Laurence, who has secrets that jeopardize both his career and family life. We are curious to see how it stands out from its contemporaries-the corrupt politician isn’t exactly new. The cast alone makes it worth watching-Helen McCrory, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Saskia Reeves, and Pip Torrens star in the series.

Roadkill will be shown as part of Masterpiece every Sunday from November 1-22 on your local PBS station.
