Channel 4’s very first phone hacking comedy, “Hacks” takes a satirical swipe at the recent momentous events surrounding the British newspaper industry. Set in a fictional paper where the drive to get the story is intense – the phrase ‘by any means necessary’ doesn’t even cover it. Phone hacking, blagging, pinging… the staff here do it all. But it’s all about to unravel, and in a big way… Editor Kate Loy doesn’t take any prisoners and the proprietor of the tabloid she runs, Stanhope Feast, demands she always gets the biggest stories first. But her moral compass went awry a long time ago – something that’s about to cause her major problems. The scandal breaks and the net closes in on her, but things get funnier as things go from bad to worse for the characters.
