6 x 45 min for E4/ NETFLIX

Crazyhead is a bold new comedy horror series from BAFTA award-winning creator of Misfits, Howard Overman. The six-part series is being produced by Urban Myth Films for Channel 4 in association with Netflix.

Laced with dark humour, Crazyhead follows Amy and Raquel as they attempt to navigate their way through the choppy waters of their early twenties whilst kicking the ass of some seriously gnarly demons. It’s thrilling, anarchic and utterly rude but at its core is about love, friendship and accepting who you are.

Starring Cara Theobold (Downton Abbey) and Susan Wokoma (Chewing Gum), Crazyhead is exec produced by Johnny Capps (Merlin, Sugar Rush), Julian Murphy (Merlin, Hex) and Howard Overman (Misfits).

The Telegraph


"Overman’s knack for making his characters seem three-dimensional, charming and familiar, despite the outlandish storylines, is the show's greatest asset. And although Crazyhead tackles some real-life personal issues (Raquel, while outwardly confident, is beset by insecurity), the tone is fun and upbeat with its tongue wedged in firmly in its cheek."


New Statesman

"thank God for Crazyhead... From Howard Overman, the creator of another, tonally similar youth supernatural series, Misfits, its success lies in its genuinely funny script, and brilliant comic performances from Theobald, and particularly Wokoma. It tackles its own incredulous premise swiftly and with humour, not self-indulgent foreshadowing”
