Follow us down the ‘Utopia’ rabbit hole and discover how one of Britain’s most ferociously original TV shows got commissioned and produced.
Joining us on stage at the festival will be the cast, director and writer of ‘Utopia’ for an indepth autopsy that will take us through inception, pitch, writing, production, editing and final audience engagement of the Ch4 smash hit show.
