E4 have announced three new series that will air on the channel in the near future.
Comedy drama Tripped stars Blake Harrison as Danny, an average 24-year-old who has decided to settle down and marry long-term girlfriend Kate much to the chagrin of his childhood friend Milo who wants to continue to get high.
One night Milo takes a particularly strong batch of hallucinogens, and Danny appears in his living room – except the real Danny’s at his engagement party, and the real Danny doesn’t normally carry a sword! This Danny claims to come from another dimension, and he brings a warning – the only problem is that Milo’s too wrecked to remember what it is.
Throughout the series Danny and Milo find themselves tripping to various parallel universes where they encounter different versions of themselves, all the time being chased by a dangerous assassin Will Danny and Milo’s friendship survive their adventure in the multiverse, and will Danny manage to return to his reality and get married to his original Kate?
Tripped co-stars BAFTA nominee Georgina Campbell alongside newcomer George Webster and Richard Gadd. The four part series is based on an original pilot by Jamie Mathieson with this series being co-created by brothers Harry and Jack Williams of The Missing fame.
Six-part comedy drama Aliens is based on the fact that extra-terrestrials have been living on Earth for the past forty years albeit in a segregated community called Troy. Troy is a ramshackle and hedonistic ghetto where a criminal sub-culture thrives. It’s a world of mystery, danger and forbidden pleasures.
But when mild-mannered human Lewis, a border control guard at the wall’s check-point, discovers that he is half-alien, his secret threatens to turn his world upside down as he is drawn into the dark underbelly of Troy.
Also coming to E4 is new factual series My Single Life (w/t) which sees eight singletons set up home in a specially constructed apartment as they begin their search for ‘the one’. The unique twist is that they will be able to watch back each date they’ve been on in an attempt to learn from their mistakes.
