UKTV today announces it has commissioned a brand new scripted comedy, We Are Not Alone (1×120′), for its award-winning entertainment channel Dave. Set six weeks after aliens have invaded and completely conquered Earth, We Are Not Alone explores the culture clash between humankind and its new alien masters, who are trying to make sense of a planet so confusing and idiotic that its inhabitants can’t even agree which side of the road to drive on. We Are Not Alone is written by Laurence Rickard and Ben Willbond and produced by Big Talk (The Outlaws, Back, Friday Night Dinner.)
Laurence Rickard and Ben Willbond said,
We are so excited to be bringing this project to you puny Earthlings. We’ve never attempted anything so ambitious or ridiculous, so we’re thrilled to be joined on the adventure by such an incredible cast and phenomenal crew.
We Are Not Alone is commissioned for UKTV by Pete Thornton, head of scripted, and ordered by Cherie Cunningham, Dave channel director. Richard Watsham is director of commissioning for UKTV and Steve North is genre general manager, comedy and entertainment. We Are Not Alone is directed by Fergal Costello (Brain In Gear) and produced by Philip Leach (The Bay). Executive producers for Big Talk are Kenton Allen, Matthew Justice and Victoria Grew.
Casting has not yet been announced
