From the producers of Cabin Pressure comes a new sitcom set in the Office of Local National Statistics - nicknamed The Lentil Sorters - which, depending on who you ask, is either where the real power of government resides, or it's the place where fun goes to die.

It would be a little piece of heaven on earth for the boss, stats-obsessed Graham, were it not for his two assistants, the socially-driven Audrey, who wants to use statistics for good and ex-banker Daniel who wants to use statistics to sell discretely to an outside polling firm and then take the afternoon off to do some crunches at the gym. But the person who really has the run of the place and runs rings round all the others - is the tealady, Mrs Wilkins.
