Drama written, directed by team behind controversial BBC documentary Ghostwatch.

Shooting will commence in late October 2017.

Genesius has also announced that Elbow front man Guy Garvey and I Am Kloot’s Peter Jobson have written the score for upcoming comedy drama The More You Ignore Me, starring Sheridan Smith.

Finally, Genesius have boarded Mrs Lowry And Sons, a screen adaptation of the Radio 4 drama that explores L.S Lowry’s troubled relationship with his overbearing mother. Adrian Noble directs.

The Little Film Company is handling sales across all Genesius projects.
