City Hall will be shown on Sky Arts 1 at 9 PM in the UK (or 4 PM, NY time).

Here's a short write-up from The Guardian UK--

Could a fortysomething stay-at-home mum with no political experience become mayor of London? Olivia Williams is Dorothy Green, who runs for office after being spotted on YouTube speaking out against the summer riots. She's thrust into a world of smarmy chatshow hosts and an even smarmier Conservative opponent (Martin Shaw), who's determined to show her his manifesto. But would the public really be more interested in her fabulous shoes and the fact that she's posed for magazine shoots in her underwear? Hannah Verdier

Olivia Williams is a London girl, which is fitting for someone who we'll next see playing a mayoral candidate in the TV play City Hall, written by her husband, the actor and playwright Rhashan Stone. Growing up in Camden, she used to pass through Marylebone, where she now lives with Stone and their two daughters, on her way to Saturday-morning ballet class; she originally thought this flat would be her "bachelorette pad… my happy acceptance of permanent singledom".
