OF Paapa Essiedu is back on our screens in the new BBC1 drama, Press. Following Doctor Foster’s critical acclaim, writer Mike Bartlett is back with a new, whip-smart drama – this time set in the offices of two fictional, competing newspapers.
BBC1’s Press follows the employees of a broadsheet newspaper, The Herald, and a tabloid, The Post, as they battle to keep their personal lives afloat while working under the pressure of a 24-hour global news cycle and an industry in turmoil. Paapa Essiedu plays Ed Washburn. A recent Oxford graduate who’s just got a job as a reporter at The Post, Ed is struggling to reconcile his liberal idealism with his duties at the paper and his desire to progress. Tune in now to see Forest’s very own Paapa continuing his ascendancy in the world of acting!
