E4 Commissions Pilot for Brand New Drama ‘ALT’

E4 have announced plans to produce a pilot for a brand new drama called ALT.

The show follows the darkly comic adventures of two best friends, Danny and Milo, as they find themselves lost within a parallel universe.

ALT stars Gethin Anthony (Renly Baratheon in Game of Thrones) as 24-year-old Danny who’s about to move in with his girlfriend Suzy, played by Roxanne McKee (Also in Game of Thrones as murderous handmaiden Doreah). Craig Roberts (Submarine) also stars as Danny’s stoner and waster ex-best friend Milo. Suddenly finding themselves transported to a parallel universe where they encounter different versions of themselves, the pair soon realise dangerous assassins played by Jason Flemyng (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, X Men: First Class) and Arsher Ali (Four Lions) seem intent on hunting them down and killing them.

Written by Jamie Mathieson (Being Human, FAQ About Time Travel) and directed by Ben Caron (Derren Brown, My Mad Fat Diary, Tommy Cooper), the show has been described by E4 as: “a mind-bending and hilarious tumble down a 21st century rabbit hole where the imaginary becomes real, where the unlikely becomes the inevitable and where the worst case scenario is actually only just the beginning.”

ALT is due to broadcast on E4 in Spring 2014.
