synopsis

When astronomers detect a transmission from another galaxy, it is definitive proof of intelligent extraterrestrial life. The world’s population waits for further contact with bated breath. They do not have to wait long. Within days, mankind is all but wiped out by a devastating attack; pockets of humanity are left in an eerily deserted world. As aliens hunt and kill those left alive, the survivors ask a burning question – who are these attackers, and why are they hell-bent on our destruction? Emotional, cinematic and rooted in character, it is a unique marriage of human drama and the best science fiction. This is a story of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances – but they are more than just victims in a brutal war. For, as we will come to realize, the aliens’ savage attack on earth is not arbitrary: its seeds are being sown before our very eyes.

Set in present-day Europe, WAR OF THE WORLDS (8×60 Drama, UK/France, Urban Myth Films in association with StudioCanal and Fox Networks Group) is a multi-faceted series, written and created by the BAFTA award winner Howard Overman (MisfitsCrazyheadMerlin) based on the timeless story by H.G. Wells. It is Executive Produced by Johnny Capps, Julian Murphy, and Howard Overman through their company, Urban Myth Films.
