(Doc­tor Fos­ter) and set in the fast-paced and chal­leng­ing en­vi­ron­ment of the Bri­tish news­pa­per in­dus­try, Press ex­plores the per­sonal lives and con­stant pro­fes­sional dilem­mas fac­ing the jour­nal­ists who work at two ri­val news­pa­pers.

The se­ries fol­low their lives as they at­tempt to balance am­bi­tion and in­tegrity amid the never-end­ing pres­sure of the 24-hour global news cy­cle and an in­dus­try in tur­moil.

The se­ries stars Char­lotte Ri­ley as the ta­lented deputy news edi­tor of The Her­ald ,a left-lean­ing broad­sheet; Ben Chap­lin (pic­tured) as the charm­ing and ma­nip­u­la­tive edi­tor of The Post; David Suchet as the CEO of the global con­glo­morate that owns

The Post; and Bren­dan Cow­ell as the news edi­tor of The Her­ald.
