The show features 'Televisionary' and 'Truth Crusader' Christoph Spinelli (Rich Fulcher) who has come to the UK to do for British Crime what he's done for America - speculate to the point of insanity and manage to make a story out of absolutely nothing. In search of a miscarriage of justice to defend, Spinelli's documentary investigates the mysterious disappearance of Polly Worcester and her would-be attacker, Tom Jessop, with all the objectivity, truth and (most importantly) sexiness you would expect. Unfortunately for Tom, Spinelli is the last person you would want on your side…

Sexy Beast was the beginning of a new phase for me of working with first time filmmakers. Jonathan Glazer was a television commercials director in the UK, and a wonderful talent. We were sent this script which he was attached to, and out came this wonderful film. It was very stimulating having a first time talent... The dialogue as you see in this film is exceptional. I had never read a script like it, and I thought, this has got to be made. It was very difficult to get insurance on the film actually. When the American studio bought the film, their legal department said: “You cannot make this.” It has something like 300 uses of the word “cunt”, and 400 “fucks”, but somehow it passed the censorship and got out there.
Producer Jeremy Thomas later remembered his experience making the film:
