The Inbetweeners star Blake Harrison is to head the cast of new E4 comedy drama Tripped.

Tripped was commissioned following an original pilot by Jamie Mathieson (Doctor Who), entitled Alt.

The 4x60 minute series is written and co-created by Harry and Jack Williams (The Missing), with Jamie Mathieson a co-creator and co-writer of episode one.

Harrison stars as Danny, an average 24-year-old who has been friends with stoner Milo (played by newcomer George Webster) since they were kids. But then Danny decides it’s time to grow up, settle down and marry long-term girlfriend Kate (Georgina Campbell), whereas Milo continues to focus on getting high.

One night Milo takes a particularly strong batch of hallucinogens, and Danny appears in his living room - except the real Danny’s at his engagement party. This Danny claims to come from another dimension, and he brings a warning - the only problem is that Milo’s too wrecked to remember what it is.

Throughout the series Danny and Milo find themselves tripping to various parallel universes where they encounter different versions of themselves, all the time being chased by a dangerous assassin (Richard Gadd).

The series is commissioned by Piers Wenger, Head of Drama and Beth Willis, Deputy Head of Drama at Channel 4 and is made by Mammoth Screen, whose current productions include Poldark (BBC), Endeavour (ITV), and Agatha Raisin (Sky 1).

Produced by James Dean (This Is Jinsy), and directed by Jamie Stone (The Village), Tripped goes into production this week and will TX on E4 later in the year.

Executive Producers are Preethi Mavahalli and Damien Timmer for Mammoth Screen, and Jack and Harry Williams for Two Brothers Pictures.
