Sky has revealed the TV that’s set to get the nation talking with two first-look trailers showcasing the latest Sky Originals, ‘The Midwich Cuckoos’ and ‘The Rising.’

The Midwich Cuckoos

An exciting modern-day reimagining of John Wyndham’s science fiction classic starring Keeley Hawes and Max Beesley. Midwich is a quiet commuter town where nothing much happens. That is, until the twilight hours of a late summer’s day, when everyone within a set area of the town falls unconscious. The curious incident seems temporary and those affected regain consciousness, but every woman of child-bearing age inside the zone has suddenly and inexplicably fallen pregnant. As the children of the phenomenon grow, it becomes clear they are not of this world.

The series is written by David Farr, Sasha Hails, Namsi Khan and Laura Lomas. Alice Troughton (Baghdad Central, A Discovery of Witches) is the lead director, with Jennifer Perrott (Gentleman Jack, Doctor Who) serving as director.

Premieres this summer on Sky Max and NOW.

The Rising

Neve Kelly is dead. Understandably, she’s scared and confused by this new (non) existence, but moreover, when she realises she has been murdered, she’s furious. Determined to find her killer and get justice, she takes advantage of her new supernatural abilities to go where the police can’t and investigate her own death. In doing so, she uncovers deeply buried secrets and is forced to re-examine everything about her life and the people she cared about.

The series is written by Pete McTighe and Charlotte Wolf, alongside Charlene James, Roanne Bardsley, and Laura Grace. Ed Lilly (Industry) is the lead director, followed by Thora Hilmarsdottir (Katla), Paul Walker (Riviera) and Carl Tibbetts (Black Mirror)

Premieres on 11 March on Sky Max and NOW.
