Sextortion: Season 1

Kiwi comedian Thomas Sainsbury leads this political satire about a dithering conservative Christian politician who, just months before the 2020 election, is hit with saucy and incriminating footage. Co-stars Cohen Holloway and Mark Mitchinson (The Luminaries). More

Says Sainsbury: "Darren's character is a very angry man who hates people outside the norm... [he is] very weak-willed and does whatever his father wants of him. Think Curb your Enthusiasm set in the Westboro Baptist Church."

The performances are what really holds the show together; the storyline is pretty middling, pretty predictable, pretty old-fashioned really.
