New UK supernatural thriller coming from Life On Mars creator
Life On Mars creator Tony Jordan has written a ten-part supernatural thriller, Legion, coming to UK channel Watch...
It's still very early days for Legion, but as an original UK supernatural series, it ticks several of our boxes, so we'll be keeping an excited eye on its development.
Written by Life On Mars creator Tony Jordan, the ten-part thriller follows criminologist Nathan Jones, a man who makes a deal with the Devil in order to save his ten-year-old daughter's life. Difficulties, as you can imagine, ensue, leading to Jones "fighting the Devil's work on Earth wherever he finds it, ultimately leading him to a revelation which will change the world as we know it."
Jordan has described the series as his "ultimate passion project; the one that I have been working on and trying to perfect for almost fifteen years; the one that has sat in my bottom drawer just waiting for the right time and place for this story to be told." That place is to be UKTV's Watch (its first original drama commission and a grand-sounding one at that) and the time? Well, shooting on Legion has yet to begin, so we've a little while to wait yet.
We'll update you on casting and other Legion news as it arrives.
