E4’s new comedy series Dead Pixels will premiere on Thursday March 28th at 9:30pm, it has been announced.
Dead Pixels is a part-live action, part-computer animation comedy that follows Meg, Nicky and Usman. Their world revolves around their obsession for the massively popular fantasy RPG Kingdom Scrolls – a mystical, magical and, more importantly, virtual world of wizards and wyverns. They are committed to the game.
Because in the end, what’s more important – playing badminton with your flatmate Alison, or defending Castle Blackfinger from marauding orcs? For Meg, Nicky and Usman it’s no contest, the castle comes first. The six episode comedy series, which is based on Comedy Blap ‘Avatards’ and was penned by Jon Brown, is produced by Various Artists Ltd and stars Alexa Davies, Will Merrick, Sargon Yelda and Charlotte Ritchie. The series was commissioned by Channel 4’s Head of Comedy Fiona McDermott back in 2017. Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong are the executive producers.
