THE SERIES

In this series of late night thrillers, four lives are sent off course when a mysterious mobile phone finds its way into their lives. Like a 21st-century Aladdin's Lamp, the phone propells our characters on adventures that spin them beyond their comfort zones.

Each stand-alone drama provides a different shade of noir - across the series there is a rich mix of thriller, action, fantasy...as well as plain spooky.

THE WRITERS

Simon Passmore has had a string of recent successes on radio with "Accomplices" and "Offshore". He has a track-record of producing top quality TV drama for the BBC and Channel 4.

Rebecca Lenkiewicz's "Her Naked Skin" was the first play to be performed on the Olivier stage at the National Theatre by a living female writer. Other work includes an adaptation of Ibsen's "An Enemy of the People" for the Arcola and "Blue Moon Over Poplar" for the Soho Theatre.

Peter Jukes is an established TV and radio writer. Recent shows for Radio 4 include the "Bad Faith" series, "Phone" and "Slavery: The Making Of".
