Toby Haynes On Board Amazon’s Utopia 


Toby Haynes (Doctor WhoSherlock) is set to direct Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming drama Utopia, based on the British series of the same name.

The 9×1-hour series is a co-production between Endemol Shine North America and Kudos, as well as Amazon Studios. The show is from Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl, Sharp Objects), who has an overall deal with Amazon Studios.

In Utopia, a group of young adults who meet online are mercilessly hunted by a shadowy deep state organization after they come into possession of a near-mythical cult underground graphic novel. They discover the conspiracy theories in the comic’s pages may actually be real and are forced into the dangerous, unique and ironic position of saving the world.
