Where’s Jessica Hyde?
Amazon Prime has released a new red band trailer for Utopia, the new series adapted from the 2013 British show of the same name.
The limited series follows a group of young adults that get a hold of a cult underground graphic novel, which burdens them with the dangerous task of saving the world.
Here’s the new trailer –
Utopia’s official synopsis reads –
“Utopia centers on a group of comic fans who meet online and bond over their obsession of a seemingly fictional comic called, “Utopia.” Together, Ian (Dan Byrd), Becky (Ashleigh LaThrop), Samantha (Jessica Rothe), Wilson Wilson (Desmin Borges) and Grant (Javon “Wanna” Walton) unearth hidden meanings cloaked within the pages of “Utopia,” predicting threats to humanity. They realize these are not just the makings of a conspiracy; they are very real dangers coming alive right now in their world. The high-stakes adventure brings the group face-to-face with the comic’s famed central character, Jessica Hyde (Sasha Lane), who joins them on their mission to save the world while harboring secrets of her own.”
Back in 2018, HBO commissioned an American remake of the UK original with David Fincher to direct. However, budget disputes killed the project at HBO. It was eventually resuscitated by Amazon. Fincher is no longer involved, but Gone Girl writer Gillian Flynn, who would be working with Fincher on the HBO version, stayed on board.
Utopia will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on September 25th.
