You’re familiar with the Virgin Media Original show The Rook. Allow us to introduce you to another brilliant exclusive show for Virgin Media customers – The Feed
The Feed, coming Monday 16 September
The Feed is the new dystopian psychological thriller that fans of Black Mirror and Years And Years will love. Based on Nick Clark Windo’s debut novel of the same name, it will be available exclusively in the UK on the Virgin TV Ultra HD channel.
The series takes place in a not-too-distant future London and follows the fortunes of the Hatfield family. Lawrence Hatfield (David Thewlis from the Harry Potter films) is the inventor of The Feed, a kind of technology that almost everyone has chosen to have implanted into their brain.
Memories, thoughts and feelings can be shared through it and full-blown conversations can be had without so much as uttering a word. Want to listen to your favourite song? Not a problem. You can do that through The Feed too. In fact, you can do practically everything without having to move a muscle.
So far, so good – except when everything starts to go south. The Feed is not impenetrable from hacks and when it goes down, people who have grown to rely on it completely don’t know how to cope.
Lawrence’s son Tom (Guy Burnet, Counterpart) was already sceptical of The Feed and now his wife Kate (Nina Toussaint-White, Bodyguard) and their young daughter Bea are in danger because of it.
Virgin Media customers with a V6 box on the Maxit or Full House TV package will be able to watch The Feed exclusively from 9pm on Monday 16 September on Virgin TV Ultra HD (CH 999). If you miss out, or if you don’t have access to Virgin TV Ultra HD, you’ll be able to watch in On Demand.
Watch this space for exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast.
