London – Channel 4 airs the first episode of its 8-part darkly comic road trip tale, ‘The End of the F***ing World’ (co-produced with Netflix). Directed by Jonathan Entwistle and Lucy Tcherniak, the series was coloured by CHEAT’s Toby Tomkins.

The series invites viewers into the confused lives of teen outsiders James (Alex Lawther – Black Mirror, The Imitation Game) and Alyssa (Jessica Barden – The Lobster, Ellen, Penny Dreadful) as they decide to escape from their families and embark on a road trip to find Alyssa’s estranged father. As the pair get caught up in a series of violent events, they find themselves on a journey of discovery that becomes progressively ominous, trailed by two uniquely mismatched police detectives – played by BAFTA-winning Wunmi Mosaku (Damilola, Our Loved Boy) and Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones, The Moorside).

The television series is based on the award-winning comic books series by Charles Forsman, so Executive Producer/Director Jonathan Entwistle and DoP Justin Brown, were looking for something special stylistically, to bring the chilling yet humorous tale to life on screen. They reached out to Toby Tomkins at CHEAT, whom they have partnered with on a number of commercials and other narrative work including feature film, ‘Sixteen’.
