TV tonight: cyber laughs with David Schwimmer and Nick Mohammed

David Schwimmer and Nick Mohammed return for a second season of their tech espionage comedy, pairing slick National Security Agency man Jerry Bernstein (Schwimmer) with hapless GCHQ recruit Joseph Harries (Mohammed). Having only just avoided extradition to the US on charges of treason, Jerry, in tonight’s opening double bill, now has to stop Russian intelligence from utilising a cybersecurity weapon he helped to design.
