E4 and Netflix partnered up earlier this year for the teen thriller The End of the F***ing World, which follows the adventures of disturbed teenager James who embarks on a road trip with a new girl in school, Alyssa, to find her real father. One night, however, the pair find themselves caught up in events that lead them down an increasingly menacing and surreal path.
Alex Lawther, who was excellently mortifying in “Black Mirror”, stars as the young teen alongside Jessica Barden (“Penny Dreaful”).
Written by Charlie Covell and based on the award-winning series of comic books by Charles Forsman, the series is described as a darkly comic road trip tale.
Jonathan Entwistle and Lucy Tcherniak direct, while Kate Ogborn (The Unloved, Red Riding) is producer.
Channel 4 is launching the full series in the UK on October 24th, while a Netflix release should be coming soon hereafter.
