Sky dials up Code 404

UK-based pay TV operator Sky has greenlit a comedy about a cop who is brought back from the dead to continue fighting crime after dying on duty.

Zai Bennett

Code 404 (6×30′) is being coproduced by UK-based Water & Power Productions and Endemol Shine Group-owned Kudos, with Sky Vision distributing.

The show, which is slated to air in 2020, is set in the near future and will revolve around two detectives, one of whom is revived using artificial intelligence to get him back to work after his death. However, the project goes awry, leaving the detective with all of his arrogance but none of his crime-fighting skills. Stephen Graham and Daniel Mays are set to star.

Code 404 will be directed by Al Campbell and written by Daniel Peak. Executive producers include Tom Miller and Sam Myer for Water & Power Productions, Phil Temple and Diederick Santer for Kudos and Morwenna Gordon for Sky1.

The series was commissioned by Jon Mountague, Sky’s head of comedy, and Zai Bennett, director of programming for Sky Entertainment UK & Ireland.
