Sky Orders New Thriller From The Five’s Harlan Coben

Sky 1 has ordered eight part thriller, The Four, an original story created by bestselling author Harlan Coben and written by Danny Brocklehurst, on the heels of Coben’s first original story for TV, The Five, which debuted in April.

The Four is a stand-alone, character-driven thriller that tells the chilling story of an idyllic family community irrevocably shattered by secrets, lies, suspicions and misguided trust.

Harlan Coben said: “I am incredibly proud of what we all achieved with The Five. Our goal from the start was to create a gripping crime drama that moved you, surprised you – and had a shocking and emotionally satisfying ending.”

“I never wanted to make a sequel to The Five – that story has now been told — but rather, to start fresh and bring a whole new crime drama to the screen… Creatively, The Four is brought to life in the way that we have imagined.”
