Channel 4 has commissioned a new drama, The Birth of Daniel F Harris, from the makers of The End of the F***king World.
Danny’s mum was killed in a car accident when he was just a baby.
In order to protect Danny from any more danger, his father Steve isolated them and locked Danny inside a new house in the middle of nowhere.
Danny grew up learning of the monsters waiting for him if he was to leave, and that they were the ones who took his mum.
For 18 years they stayed, avoiding the evil outside while listening to Benny Goodman records and watching old movies with only happy endings.
But when Danny reaches adulthood he is forced to reckon with the real world - a world he’s never known – and find the real monster who killed his mother.
The eight-episode series is writer Pete Jackson’s first commission for TV.
Lee Mason, Channel 4 Commissioning Editor, said: “Jackson has crafted a uniquely bold and beautiful piece of storytelling that imaginatively taps into the experiences of many young people today.”
Jackson added: “I couldn’t be more excited to bring this story to the screen, and couldn’t think of more perfect collaborators than Clerkenwell Films and Channel 4.
“It offers a great opportunity to re-evaluate our world through the eyes of someone for whom it’s all completely new.”
