I automatically hate people saying he should be doing Sherlock instead other (much more interesting) projects. Happily for us, he is interested on evolving as an actor instead of being a failure who only plays the same character for life. And he is very successful doing it! But it’s Facebook, they obviously are stuck in the past! 😉
Also a lot of people mentioning a Netflix comedy series called Happy. It indeed sounds slightly similar but I’m guessing Eric will be much more serious.
I watched the whole first season of The End of the F***in World, directed by Lucy Forbes and I have to say it was really good. The episodes are very short and it moves very fast so it was an easy watch. I think she did a great work. It’s a little like Wes Anderson but with a much darker photography and comedy. The cinematographer is also the same “Benedict” who is working in Eric (they are a team)!
So yeah, a great writer and a talented young TV director. And of course, a great lead actor! It should be really good! Finger crossed!
EDITED It seems she only directed episodes for the second season! Lol So I haven’t really watched her work! Anyway, the series is really good and the end was perfect, I don’t know what happens next but that would had been just the right ending
the aspiring serial killer not just discovering he doesn’t really has a killer in him but sacrificing his life for the person he initially planned to kill. It’s a more twisted version of Kate Winslet being a suicidal girl who ends fighting for her survival and lives a long life (thanks to a guy who shows her how valuable is she) in Titanic. Or my favorite, The Spy who Came in From the Cold: the title calculating and cold spy not understanding why a source risked and lost his life for the passion he felt for a dubious woman but himself ending dying for a young woman (that he considered plain, very naive and even fat, in the book. In the movie she is gorgeous!) who he very coldly seduced to use her as a tool so Russian spies could contact him
This official article is supposedly about Netflix’s series for this year. It has a few scheduled for 2024, tho. But it seems that they still don’t have clear when they will shown Eric,
LIMITED SERIES Eric Logline: Set in 1980s New York, Eric is a new emotional thriller from Abi Morgan that follows a father’s desperate search when his 9-year-old son disappears one morning on the way to school. Vincent, one of New York’s leading puppeteers and creator of the hugely popular children’s television show Good Day Sunshine, struggles to cope with the loss of his son, Edgar. He becomes increasingly distressed and volatile. Full of self-loathing and guilt around Edgar’s disappearance, he clings to his son’s drawings of a blue monster puppet, Eric, convinced that if he can get Eric on TV, then Edgar will come home. As Vincent’s progressively destructive behavior alienates his family, his work colleagues and the detectives trying to help him, it’s Eric who becomes his only ally in the pursuit to bring his son home. Release Date: TBD
