All 4 acquires AwesomenessTV’s Emmy-nominated Light as a Feather
All 4 has acquired the American supernatural thriller Light As a Feather from AwesomenessTV. The 10-episode series will be made available, in its entirety, on April 1.
Originally released in the US on Hulu, Light as a Feather centres on four best friends who invite the shy new girl out on Halloween, but they soon regret their decision when she suggests they play a seemingly innocent game of ‘Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board’. The game goes awry when the five girls start dying off in the exact way that was predicted, forcing the survivors to figure out why they’ve been targeted – and whether the evil force hunting them down is one of their own.
Described by Teen Vogue as “Pretty Little Liars meets The Craft, with a dash of Final Destination,” Light as a Feather stars Liana Liberato (The Best of Me, Sons of Anarchy), Haley Ramm (X-Men: The Last Stand, Red State), Ajiona Alexus (13 Reasons Why, Empire), Brianne Tju (Scream: The TV Series) and Peyton List (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Jessie). It was developed by AwesomenessTV, a best in class media company serving the global Gen Z audience.
The series has been nominated for four Daytime Emmys, including Outstanding Lead Actress in a Digital Daytime Drama, Outstanding Supporting Actress, Outstanding Writing and Outstanding Director.
Light As a Feather was acquired as part of a deal with Viacom International Media Networks that includes three further Awesomeness title – Sleep Tight, All Night and Love Daily – to be released on All 4 this summer.
Charlie Palmer, Managing Editor All 4 said: “We’re thrilled to bringing Light as a Feather to All 4. Be sure to have your night light handy.”
Zachary Slatter, Head of Distribution for Awesomeness said, “Our partnership with Channel 4 is a huge milestone in our global expansion, and we can’t wait for fans to fall in love with Light as a Feather.”
