Creators of Misfits prepare to film Aliens
A new comedy drama for E4, Aliens, is nearing pre-production with shooting set to begin in London and Bulgaria towards the end of August.
From Misfits producer Clerkenwell Films, the 6 x 60 centres on Troy, a segregated community where aliens live in a chaotic and dangerous ghetto behind a vast wall. When Lewis, a mild-mannered human who works as a checkpoint guard, discovers he is half alien, he becomes drawn into the hedonistic sub-culture on the other side.
The screenplay is by Fintan Ryan (In the Flesh); Matt Jarvis, Murray Ferguson and Petra Fried executive produce. Charlie Leech is the producer.
