Channel 4’s recently revamped video on demand service, All 4, has acquired the American supernatural thriller Light As a Feather from AwesomenessTV. 

The 10-episode series will be made available, in its entirety, on April 1.

Originally released in the US on Hulu, Light as a Feather centres on four best friends who invite the shy new girl out on Halloween, but they soon regret their decision when she suggests they play a seemingly innocent game of ‘Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board’. 

The game goes awry when the five girls start dying off in the exact way that was predicted, forcing the survivors to figure out why they’ve been targeted – and whether the evil force hunting them down is one of their own.

Described by Teen Vogue as “Pretty Little Liars meets The Craft, with a dash of Final Destination,” Light as a Feather stars Liana Liberato (The Best of Me, Sons of Anarchy), Haley Ramm (X-Men: The Last Stand, Red State), Ajiona Alexus (13 Reasons Why, Empire), Brianne Tju (Scream: The TV Series) and Peyton List (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Jessie). 

The show was developed by AwesomenessTV, a best in class media company serving the global Gen Z audience.

The series has been nominated for four Daytime Emmys, including Outstanding Lead Actress in a Digital Daytime Drama, Outstanding Supporting Actress, Outstanding Writing and Outstanding Director. 

Light As a Feather was acquired as part of a deal with Viacom International Media Networks that includes three further Awesomeness title – Sleep Tight, All Night and Love Daily – to be released on All 4 this summer.

“We’re thrilled to bringing Light as a Feather to All 4. Be sure to have your night light handy”, said Charlie Palmer, Managing Editor All 4.

Zachary Slatter, Head of Distribution for Awesomeness said, “Our partnership with Channel 4 is a huge milestone in our global expansion, and we can’t wait for fans to fall in love with Light as a Feather.”
