Channel 4 Releases Trailer For ‘The Accident’

Channel 4 has released the trailer for their upcoming Jack Thorne drama The Accident (formerly known as The Light). The Accident is set in the fictional Welsh town of Glyngolau and explores a forgotten community devastated by disaster. An explosion on the construction site of a much-needed and sought-after regeneration project in this “left-behind” town claims the lives of many children who have broken into the building site to make mischief.

Channel 4 Closes Out Jack Thorne Trilogy With ‘The Light’

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.
