The Five’s Harlan Coben creates new Sky 1 drama, The Four 

Sky 1, Harlan Coben, Danny Brocklehurst & Red Production Company reunite

Sky 1 is reuniting with The Five creator Harlan Coben for a new six-part stand-alone crime thriller, The Four, once again written by Danny Brocklehurst.

Made by RED Production Company, The Four is an eight-part, original character-driven thriller telling the chilling story of an idyllic family community irrevocably shattered by secrets, lies, suspicions and misguided trust.

Harlan Coben said: “I am incredibly proud of what we all achieved with The Five.  Our goal from the start was to create a gripping crime drama that moved you, surprised you – and had a shocking and emotionally satisfying ending.  I never wanted to make a sequel to The Five – that story has now been told — but rather, to start fresh and bring a whole new crime drama to the screen. Working with Nicola and Sky again was essential to ensure that creatively, The Four is brought to life in the way that we have imagined.”

Nicola Shindler of RED Production Company added: “Working with Harlan on The Five was a fantastic experience and I am incredibly proud of what we created. When Harlan told me about the premise for his latest story many months ago, I knew that it would be just as addictive viewing as The Five. As with all his work, it is utterly intriguing, totally immersive and completely character-driven.”
