Today, we can exclusively reveal a stunning five-minute clip showcasing some of the intense drama audiences can expect from Netflix original drama, Anatomy of a Scandal.

When a government minister is accused of rape, media scrutiny is at an all-time high. This TV show however, chooses to focus on the women involved in the scandal, from the accuser to those working on the side of the law and indeed, the defendant.

The clip above, courtesy of Netflix, sees some of the series’ leading cast – Michelle Dockery, Naomi Scott and Josette Simon – discuss the dynamic between their respective characters and the “web of different stories” that are explored throughout the six-part drama.

Audiences will question exactly who is telling the truth as secrets are brought to light, asking themselves exactly how they would approach the case as they are forced to think “quite profoundly”, in a topical discussion that hits you right in the gut.

Since launching, Anatomy of a Scandal become the #1 most-watched show on Netflix in the UK. The series infiltrates Britain's elite through both the personal and political, feeding viewers with a slow-drip of information to build tension and suspense before its shocking conclusion.

The show is created, written and executive produced by David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies) and Melissa James Gibson (House of Cards), with S.J. Clarkson (Jessica Jones) directing.

Liza Chasin (The Lost City) of 3Dot Productions, Bruna Papandrea (Gone Girl) and Allie Goss of Made Up Stories, and Sarah Vaughan and Margaret Chernin all also serve as co-executive producers.

Other cast members include Rupert Friend, Geoffrey Streatfeild, Joshua McGuire, Liz White, Nancy Farino, Hannah Dodd, Ben Radcliffe, Jake Simmance, Annie Haworth, Amelie Bea-Smith and Sebastian Selwood.

Anatomy of a Scandal is available to stream now, exclusively on Netflix.
