Asylum is a satirical comedy series which revolves around a whistle blower and an internet pirate who find themselves trapped together under the threat of extradition in the London embassy of a fictional Latin American country. The show starring Ben Miller and Kayvan Novak was inspired by Julian Assange’s two-year stay in the Ecuadorian embassy and the controversial entrepreneur Kim Dotcom.
