The show combines humor, drama, and satire to take the audience on a rollercoaster ride of emotions.

Flack opens with Robyn working on a PR campaign to protect a celebrity's public image. She is good at her job, and she knows it. Robyn is smart, sharp-witted, and cunning. She is very good at managing people, but her personal life is a mess. She drinks too much, has affairs with married men, and is estranged from her sister.

Robyn's team is composed of four other women who work in the same PR firm. Eve (Lydia Wilson) is Robyn's best friend and confidant. Mel (Rebecca Benson) is the newbie who is eager to please Robyn. Anna (Genevieve Angelson) is the American who is new to London and her job as a PR executive. Caroline (Sophie Okonedo) is their boss who is just as ruthless as Robyn, but Robyn has a complicated relationship with her.

The show skillfully weaves together Robyn's personal and professional life. Her relationships with her family, friends, co-workers, and lovers all intertwine to make a fascinating narrative.

Her chemistry with the rest of the cast is excellent, particularly her scenes with Sophie Okonedo, who plays her boss.

Rebecca Benson gives a strong performance as Mel, the newbie. She is wide-eyed, eager, and enthusiastic about her job. She provides the innocence in the show, and her character is a great foil to Robyn's cynicism. Genevieve Angelson is excellent as Anna, the American.
