IFC is declaring 2020 to be the “Year of the Rabbit,” with the cable channel announcing today that its new comedy series by that title will premiere Wednesday, Feb. 19. The show comes from BAFTA winner Matt Berry.
The original series follows Detective Inspector Rabbit (Berry), a hardened booze-hound who’s seen it all, and his hapless, new, by-the-books partner Strauss (Freddie Fox). While they’re investigating a local murder, the lewd but insightful adoptive daughter (Susan Wokoma) of the chief of police joins them. Together, the trio must fight crime while rubbing shoulders with street gangs, crooked politicians, spiritualists and music hall stars.
The channel released premiere dates and details for each of the episodes of the six-episode first season, which you can see by clicking here.
