C4 orders Genevieve Barr drama, I.D

  • News

C4 logo Channel 4 has commissioned I.D, a mystery thriller from actor/writer Genevieve Barr and Eleven Film



I.D (w/t) – comprising 8 x 30 eps – centres on Emily, a young deaf woman who witnesses a neighbour taking pictures of her.

This leads her to explore what she might have done to warrant this unwanted attention, while simultaneously beginning a dance with a stranger that is both exhilarating and dangerous. 



The drama is executive produced by Eleven’s Carissa Hope Lynch and Joel Wilson, and Jack Thorne. 

Barr said: “I.D. is a journey into who we are and how people view us. Eleven gave it a home when I was starting out and I'm delighted we've found it a broadcaster with Channel 4 who are pathfinders in fearless and inclusive storytelling. It is a privilege to be living and breathing this deaf-led series with this team.”

Hope Lynch added: “It's such a joy to work on a story, which is so propulsive, timely and soulful. Equal parts mystery thriller and intimate character-led drama, we couldn’t be more excited to be collaborating with Genevieve to bring her first original series to life. What better home for this thoroughly distinct proposition than Channel 4 Drama?”
