Sky Living has commissioned a new drama The Five from number one international best-selling author Harlan Coben (Tell No One), in his first original story for television.

Coben’s roller-coaster thriller follows a group of friends who are united by a terrible incident. Haunted by the disappearance of one of their younger brothers some years earlier, while he was in their care, the group is forced to revisit the past when the missing boy’s DNA turns up at the scene of a murder.

Harlan Coben commented: “The Five is my first original story for television and I couldn’t have found a better home.  I’ve been a fan of Sky Living and Red’s rich, compelling dramas – and working with them has been a thrill.  We are creating something special here.  I can’t wait for you to see it.”

The Five is being produced by Red Production Company, filming will commence in the spring to debut on Sky Living later this year.
