Bedlam is SkyLiving HD's first scripted drama commission and is a contemporary paranormal six-part series, starring singer and actor Will Young (Mrs Henderson Presents, Skins) as Ryan McAllister, Theo James (A Passionate Woman, Downton Abbey) as Jed Harper, Charlotte Salt (The Tudors) as Kate Bettany, Ashley Madekwe (Secret Diary of a Call Girl) as Molly Lucas and Hugo Speer (Vera, Moving On) as Warren Bettany.
The series is set around Bedlam Heights: a newly converted apartment building on the edge of a British metropolis. The high quality rental apartments offer stylish 21st century living, but behind the facade lie unimaginable horrors. This former pre-Victorian asylum is haunted by the ghosts of its dark and violent past.
Kate lives in Bedlam Heights with her flatmates Ryan and Molly, and works for her father Warren, renovating the old family building. Kate is surprised by the unexpected arrival of her cousin Jed, who is propelled back into Kate's life by text messages telling him to 'Save Kate'. With a history of mental illness, Jed is a troubled man who sees ghosts and visions of the past. While trying to retain his sanity, Jed gradually uncovers the terrifying secrets held in Bedlam Heights. He's convinced Kate is in danger from the spooks of Bedlam but, unbeknown to him, the truth will be far more terrifying.
