Greenlit last year, The Gathering centers on the violent attack on a teenage girl in a tidal islet. Set on Merseyside and interrogating the ways in which today’s parents impose their agendas, the drama focuses on a group of teens from disparate backgrounds, each of whom could have committed the crime, along with their parents – who give equal cause for suspicion.

Walsh, who directed 2016 movie The Violators, said: “I’m thrilled to have a brilliant cast on board led by such established talent. Our young actors, many of whom are newcomers, have wowed us with their raw and heartfelt depictions of teenagers having to navigate adult problems in morally ambiguous worlds.”

The series was commissioned for Channel 4 by Caroline Hollick, Head of Drama, and Gwawr Lloyd, Commissioning Editor, Drama. EPs are Simon Heath, Laura Cotton, Helen Walsh and Gareth Bryn for World Productions and the producer is Graham Drover. The director of episodes 1, 2, 5 and 6 will be Bryn (Line of Duty) and Amanda Blue (Maternal) is helming 3 and 4. ITV Studios is handling international distribution.

The series is Line of Duty producer World’s first Channel 4 show since 2017, when it was behind Born to Kill.
