Dead Pixels Series 1

Dead Pixels Series 1 - First Launched on E4 Thursday 28th March 2019 and Wednesday 19th August 2020 on The CW Network.  All Episodes are available on All4 in the UK.

What’s more important – going out with your best friend, or defending Castle Blackfinger from marauding orcs? 

Twentysomething friends Meg (Alexa Davies), Nicky (Will Merrick) and Usman (Sargon Yelda) are all committed players of Kingdom Scrolls, a magical, online world of wizards, orcs and wyverns. Meg doesn’t fancy Nicky. Nicky definitely doesn’t fancy Meg. Nothing will ever happen between them, IRL or in Kingdom Scrolls. And why would they bother, when they have Red Spawn and their leader, Hive Mother, to defeat?

Part live action, part computer game, Dead Pixels is a ground-breaking comedy about love, avatars and why you should never try to groom an animated horse.


Written by BAFTA award-winning writer Jon Brown (Succession, Fresh Meat, Veep)

Directed by Al Campbell
