The mockumentary is set on the day of the 2014 Scottish Independence referendum, and designed to capture a snap shot of a nation on the brink of both triumph and disaster.
Producer Rab Christie explains: "Many of the characters and sketches are themed around the referendum, others are simply going about their business one day in September... hopefully it'll be a very funny show, and a celebration of Scottish talent."
Rachel Springett, commissioner for Channel 4, explains: "This is a brilliantly unique idea that will bring levity and humour to what is essentially a cardinal, seminal moment in Scottish history. We're very excited to with with The Comedy Unit and an incredible cast to bring this timely mockumentary to Channel 4."
