Hiddleston will be playing potential big-time political player James Cooper, who is selected to run for a seat in parliament. Asher Millan is sent to vet him for primetime, but she quickly uncovers potentially damaging secrets buried deep in James’ past. Secrets that will threaten to blow everything apart — his career, his marriage, even the powerful people backing his campaign.

The series is being described as “a political thriller about the paradox of truth in a post-truth world.”

Hiddleston, who earned a Golden Globe for his performance in mini-series The Night Manager, is heading back to the small screen in a big way. Apart from White Stork, Hiddleston will be reprising his MCU role as the God of Mischief in the highly anticipated Disney+ series Loki.
