All4 Picks Up Supernatural Thriller ‘Light as a Feather’ With April UK Premiere
All4 has picked up the UK rights to Hulu’s Emmy-nominated supernatural thriller ‘Light as a Feather‘ the broadcaster announced today, which will premiere on the Channel 4 streaming service this April.
The series centres on four best friends who invite the shy new girl out on Halloween, but they soon regret their decision when she suggests they play a seemingly innocent game of ‘Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board’. The game goes awry when the five girls start dying off in the exact way that was predicted, forcing the survivors to figure out why they’ve been targeted – and whether the evil force hunting them down is one of their own.
Described by Teen Vogue as “‘Pretty Little Liars’ meets ‘The Craft’, with a dash of ‘Final Destination’,” ‘Light as a Feather’ stars Liana Liberato (‘The Best of Me’, ‘Sons of Anarchy’), Haley Ramm (‘X-Men: The Last Stand’, ‘Red State’), Ajiona Alexus (’13 Reasons Why’, ‘Empire’), Brianne Tju (‘Scream: The TV Series’) and Peyton List (‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’, ‘Jessie’).
The series has been nominated for four Daytime Emmys, including Outstanding Lead Actress in a Digital Daytime Drama, Outstanding Supporting Actress, Outstanding Writing and Outstanding Director.
“We’re thrilled to bringing Light as a Feather to All 4. Be sure to have your night light handy,” commented Charlie Palmer, Managing Editor All 4.
Light As a Feather was acquired as part of a deal with Viacom International Media Networks that includes three further titles from AwesomenessTV, who make the series. They are ‘Sleep Tight’, ‘All Night’ and ‘Love Daily’, and will be released on All 4 this summer.
‘Light as a Feather‘ Season 1 will premiere on Monday, 1st April 2019, when the entire 10-episode series will be available on All4.
