Channel 4’s four-part ISIS drama The State will premiere on Sunday August 20th at 9pm, and will then continue to air daily in the same time-slot, it has been announced.
The State follows the experiences of four young British men and women who have left their lives behind to join ISIS in Raqqah, Syria. As they experience more of the realities of life in Raqqah, witnessing horrific atrocities carried out by the regime and the bloody aftermath of air strikes, their journeys diverge – into disillusionment and despair on the one hand and increasing commitment to the Caliphate on the other.
The fact-based drama hails from Wolf Hall helmer Peter Kosminsky, who wrote the scripts and served as director. It is being produced by Archery Pictures and stars Sam Otto, Ryan McKen, Ony Uhiara and Shavani Cameron. National Geographic is co-producing and will air The State internationally. The executive producers are Liza Marshall, Kris Thykier and Peter Kosminsky. For National Geographic Channels, Carolyn G. Bernstein is Executive Vice President and Head of Global Scripted Development and Production.
