The multi-million bestselling author, Harlan Coben, enjoyed his first foray into the world of TV with The Five – it was a glossy, fast-paced, twisty-turny whodunnity style thriller about a group of friends with hidden secrets whose worlds were shaken by the reemergence of a childhood friend long thought to be dead. It did well for Sky, and now the author has teamed up with the network again to make a follow-up series, albeit another stand-alone story.
According to Deadline:
“I am incredibly proud of what we all achieved with The Five,” said Harlan Coben. “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.”
The Four is an original story created by Coben and written by Danny Brocklehurst. Exec producers are Harlan Coben, Danny Brocklehurst and Nicola Shindler for RED.
