E4 today announced a new comedy/drama from Doctor Who writer Jamie Mathieson (Flatline, Mummy on the Orient Express). Tripped is a four-part series set in parallel universes will air later this year on the channel. Check out the details below.
The Inbetweeners star Blake Harrison heads a cast of fresh new talent in E4’s mind blowing new series Tripped a comedy drama set in parallel universes. Harrison stars as Danny, an average 24-year-old who has been friends with stoner Milo (played by newcomer George Webster) since they were kids. But then Danny decides it’s time to grow up, settle down and marry long-term girlfriend Kate (played by RTS nominee Georgina Campbell), whereas Milo continues to focus on getting high.
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 (Richard Gadd). 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 was commissioned following an original pilot by Jamie Mathieson, entitled Alt. The 4×60 minute series is written and co-created by Harry and Jack Williams (The Missing), with Jamie Mathieson a co-creator and co-writer of episode one.
Mathieson has co-written a story with Steven Moffat (both pictured above) for Doctor Who Series 9, The Girl Who Died – visit the episode guide HERE.
