Woodland is a genre-bending twist on every parent’s worst nightmare. What starts as ‘missing kid’ case soon bends genres to question the very nature of faith, reality, and the treatment of those who are not like us. We combine the urgency of a missing child case with the unexplainable supernatural aspect of fantasy that just might be real to explore the treatment and possible extinction of a group of refugees nobody even knew existed. Woodland is inspired by ancient Welsh folklore and fuses the desperate search of The Missing, the fantasy political machinations of Game of Thrones, and the unsettling supernatural dimension of The Returned.
Created by Jeff Norton and produced by Ed Thomas for Fiction Factory, Woodland is one of the projects of MIA|TV Drama Series Pitching Forum. Learn more about this and the others projects clicking here.
