BBC America is co-producing conspiracy thriller State Within, starring genre veterans Sharon Gless of Cagney & Lacey as the U.S. defense secretary and Jason Isaacs of The West Wing as British ambassador to the United States.

The drama takes place over 17 days in the life of the British ambassador, following a major diplomatic incident in Washington, D.C. Isaacs’ character grapples with a world of tangled relationships and conflicting interests, up against an invisible puppeteer manipulating him and the situation.

State Within is filming in Canada and Washington until July, and it is a co-production with the British Broadcasting Corp.
