Nathan Stewrt-Jarrett Utopia

C4 didn't have a hi-res version of the above image, but it's your first official look at Nathan Stewart-Jarrett (Misfits) in the upcoming new C4 6-part, 6-hour series titled Utopia, which he stars in alongside Paul HigginsAlexandra Roach and Neil Maskell. 

To be directed by Marc Munden, from a script written by Dennis Kelly, Utopia's synopsis reads:

The Utopia Experiments is a legendary graphic novel shrouded in mystery. But when Ian, Becky, Grant and Wilson Wilson, a small group of previously unconnected people find themselves in possession of an original manuscript of the fabled book, their lives suddenly and brutally implode. Targeted swiftly and relentlessly by a murderous organisation known as The Network this terrified group are left with only one option if they want to survive: they have to run. When help appears to come in the form of the mysterious Jessica Hyde, who promises to keep them safe, what choice is there but to believe her? As their world goes dark and all they previously knew is wrenched from them, the four strangers must shed their past and come together in order to survive this violent new future. 

At the time of our last post on this, over the summer, it wasn't public what Nathan's role would be. We just knew that he'd be one of the 4; it was just a question of which, and what his character's contribution to the overall narrative is.

Now we know, as C4 begins press outreach for the series. We also know when exactly it'll debut.

First, regarding Nathan's role... he's playing the first character mentioned in the synopsis - Ian, who is described as...

... an IT consultant... who met the rest of the group on a forum. It's not something he would normally do, go on the forum, and he doesn't really know much about the manuscript. He's quite naïve about the whole thing, and is the newbie of the group, in a sense. He questions everything, and follows the others like a little lamb.

Secondly, Utopia is set to debut on January 15 at 10pm on Channel 4, in the UK. As for whether it'll travel, no word on that yet. I guess there has to be some demand for it. But given that Nathan' last series, Misfits, had quite a following here in the USA, I won't be surprised if it's picked up by somebody. Maybe even Hulu.

Finally, in an interview with C4, the script for the show is described as amazing, shocking, with high stakes and the regular threat of violence, and, of course, some humor to balance things out.

Audiences will be engaged with the series via multiple platforms, encouraging debate around some of the drama's biggest themes. 

Utopia will be produced by Kudos Film & TV for Channel 4, Rebekah Wray-Rogers, and executive producers are Karen Wilson, Jane Featherstone, and Dennis Kelly.
