A very black comedy – Mikey is a hitman exposed to parts of the brain he never thought he would see. After an accidental death, some nagging last words, and a chance encounter in a steam bath he's trying to straighten things out. Bizarre events play out on the Mexico border, on a trampoline, via the aisles of Toys R Us. 'Part Beckett, part Scorsese... a satisfying blend!' ( With creative team members from War Horse, The Hit is something different. Breaking Bad meets Team America in show designed to blow your mind.
