Party Animals is a British television drama series screened on BBC Two in 2007. It was produced by World Productions, the makers of No Angels and This Life.[1]

Party Animals tells the story of people involved with the Parliament of the United Kingdom, including researchers, lobbyists, and government (at the time Labour) and Tory Members of Parliament.

Despite reasonably good critical reaction, the show scored poorly in the ratings, attracting only one million viewers.[citation needed] The BBC has not commissioned another series.

The show featured Matt Smith, portraying Parliamentary researcher Danny Foster in his first major television role.

In Australia, ABC1 began airing the show from 2 December 2008 on a Tuesday 8:30pm timeslot over the ('non-ratings period') summer break.[2] In the province of Ontario, Canada, TVOntario (Ontario's public educational media organisation), began airing the series in February 2010. In the province of British Columbia, Canada, The Knowledge Network began airing the series in September 2011. In Norway, NRK aired the show from May-June 2012.[3] It is also currently streaming on Hulu and Clubcard TV [1].
