Synopsis: Mercury is set in the fast paced, cut throat world of newspaper journalism. It revolves around the day to day running of a quality Sunday broadsheet - The Sunday Mercury. About real people and real journalists in a large metropolitan city in the 90's, this series reveals the methods used by old time journos to secure a scoop, and the learning curve of the cadets who strive to emulate them. Mercury enters the world of an extraordinary tribe of self-ordained heroes, incurable gossips and rampant egos obsessed with the hunt for an exclusive and filing their stories by deadline.
