Nathan Stewart-Jarrett (Misfits) has been cast alongside Paul Higgins, Alexandra Roach and Neil Maskell to headline an ensemble cast for a new C4 6-part, 6-hour series titled Utopia.

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. 

No cast assignments yet, but Nathan Stewart-Jarrett is one of the 4; it's just a question of which, and what his character's contribution to the overall narrative is.

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

Currently filming, 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.
