Sadly, the Beeb is not making a British answer to Mad Men (what a good idea that would be), but a series on the not-so-glamorous topic of knife crime, with a storyline that somehow involves a female character in the ad world (thrown in, we presume, to make it more appealing to the cosy middle market).
Through their findings, the series writers learned a few unexpected home truths about advertising. The researchers naively assumed that after a pitch, agency folk have a formal debriefing session. But DDB quickly put them right, revealing they head straight to the pub for a major de-sobering session instead.
Diary is very intrigued to see how the worlds of knife crime and advertising collide. Sadly, we'll have to wait until next year to find out.
