“Walking Dead” showrunner Channing Powell is bringing to life the psychological thriller Amazon Original series “The Feed”.
Created by Powell, the 10-episode series, based on the novel by Nick Clark Windo, stars Guy Burnet (Ray Donavan, pictured above), Nina Toussaint White (EastEnders), David Thewlis (Harry Potter, pictured below), and Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones), Deadline reports.
The series, “Set in London in the near future, it centers on the British family of Lawrence Hatfield (Thewlis), the man who invented an omnipresent technology called The Feed. Implanted into nearly everyone’s brain, The Feed enables people to share information, emotions, and memories instantly. But when things start to go wrong and users become murderous, the family is driven apart as they struggle to control the monster they have unleashed.”
Lawrence Hatfield’s wife Meredith (Fairley) is the CEO of the powerful global mega-company which runs The Feed. Her first-born son, Tom Hatfield (Burnet), was the subject of his father’s early experiments on inserting the neural mesh that connects people to The Feed. Being his father’s guinea pig has come at a cost to their relationship, and Tom is reluctant to use the seductive technology. Tom is married to Kate (White), a young American who shares his wariness to being constantly “on.” When the young couple, Tom and Kate, deliver a baby daughter, it coincides with changes to The Feed that will have consequences for the family and the entire world.
“The Feed” is set to begin filming in the UK later this month and will premiere worldwide next year on Amazon Prime Video in the U.S., Canada, and Latin America.
