Channel 4 is completing their trilogy of Jack Thorne four-part dramas. The PSB has given the greenlight to The Light, the final four part drama from the scribe behind the award winning Harry Potter & The Cursed Child. The first two entries in the trilogy, National Treasure and Kiri, aired on Channel 4 in 2016 and 2018, respectively. The Light takes a look at disability and will focus on the repercussions of a catastrophic disaster that befalls a community in a small Welsh town which has seen more prosperous times. The disaster claims the lives of many, children included and, as personal and communal grief gives way to a torrent of anger and blame, the community finds itself torn apart.
