COBRA is a political drama set in the heart of government during a crisis that threatens to engulf the entire nation.
In times of national emergency, a team comprised of Britain’s leading experts, crisis contingency planners and the most senior politicians assemble under the name ‘COBRA’ with the aim to coordinate the government response. In those meetings we’ll see how a government works under extreme pressure to make difficult decisions quickly and watch as the consequences play out on the ground in the worst hit parts of the country and in the iconic boardroom in the heart of Whitehall.
