I'm always up for a good conspiracy thriller, and Space has just released that they have picked up Channel 4's 6-part series Utopia starring Paul Higgins, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Alexandra Roach, Neil Maskell, Paul Ready, James Fox Geraldine James, Simon McBurney, Michael Smiley and Fiona O'Shaughnessy. Utopia begins airing on Space on Thursday April 25, 2013 at 10pm ET.
Here's more information from the media release: "How long before they find you? Who’s pulling the strings? How will we all survive? On Thursday, April 25 at 10 p.m. ET, Space makes a deal with the devil for the series premiere of British conspiracy thriller, UTOPIA. The six-part series follows a small group of previously unconnected people who find themselves in possession of The Utopia Experiments, a legendary graphic novel shrouded in mystery. Suddenly and brutally, their lives begin to implode when they are relentlessly targeted by a murderous organization known as ‘The Network,’ who is in pursuit of the manuscript. The terrified group are left with only one option if they want to survive – they have to run.
Already commissioned for a second season by U.K.’s Channel 4, UTOPIA features a brilliant ensemble cast including Paul Higgins (In the Loop), Nathan Stewart-Jarrett (MISFITS), and Alexandra Roach (The Iron Lady)."
Sounds pretty awesome to me!
