It’s no surprise SundanceTV speaks British with hit shows like The Honourable Woman, Appropriate Adult, and One Child already a part of its Britcentric roster of programming. To further prove their Brit bonafides, they’ve launched a super-cheeky American-to-British (and vice versa) insult translator on the website for their new comedy Babylon, premiering Thursday, January 8 at 10/9c.
The Danny Boyle-produced police satire stars The Missing’s James Nesbitt and Brit Marling (Another Earth). Marling portrays an American PR whiz who is recruited to London to give the police force a technological makeover.
