The Intern is a five-part media satire set in the newsroom of a fictional print tabloid, The Moribund Times. Each episode follows the travails of two cloistered, ignorant and hopelessly inane subeditors, Damian and Ryan, as they try to write headlines for the next day’s front page. Their little bubble of bigoted self-confidence is rocked when Liz, a journalism student, arrives for her one-week internship at the paper. Turns out Liz is a natural at the job, punning circles around the old guard with wordplay so red-hot, it makes The Daily Telegraph look green.
