E4 has commissioned a brand new drama pilot called ALT.
Written by Jamie Mathieson (Being Human) and directed by Ben Caron (My Mad Fat Diary), the show is due to air on E4 in the spring.
The show stars Gethin Anthony (Game of Thrones) as 24-year-old everyman Danny who’s about to move in with his girlfriend Suzy (Roxanne McKee). Along with stoner friend Milo (Craig Roberts) Danny is transported to a parallel universe where they encounter different versions of themselves and soon realise dangerous assassins are intent on hunting them down and killing them.
The show also stars Jason Flemyng (X-Men: First Class) and Arsher Ali (Four Lions).
Commissioner Beth Willis says “ALT is a mind-bendingly funny pilot for E4 from the pen of Jamie Mathieson and directed by the brilliant Ben Caron. Milo and Danny are wonderful and useless and loveable. Expect the unexpected – and lots of laughs.”
“We’re so pleased to bring Jamie’s hugely inventive and hilarious world to life, and are lucky to have such an incredibly talented creative team and cast – all of whom have given us a bold new show full of fun, wit and adventure” says Damien Timmer from Mammoth Screen.
We’ll keep you posted on the show as more news, images and clips become available.
