Russell T. Davies is back working with the British public broadcaster on a dystopian miniseries exploring the political future of Great Britain through the lives and loves of one family.

The miniseries, called "Years and Years," follows the lives of the Lyons family and its various members over 15 years, as Great Britain undergoes major political changes, and economic and technological advances. On one crucial night in 2019, "the story accelerates into the future, following the lives and loves of the Lyons over the next 15 years," the producers explain.

In a not-too-distant future in which Great Britain has left the European Union, America has become isolationist and China's power is growing, the story also charts the rise of Vivienne Rook, a new kind of politician, entertainer, trickster and rebel. Russell T. Davies said: "I've wanted to write this for 20 years or so. And as the world accelerates like crazy around us, I realized I'd better get on with it."
