E4 brings together a cast of Britain’s brightest young talent in brand new original series Glue, created and written by BAFTA-winning writer Jack Thorne (This is England, Skins, The Fades).
Overton. A tiny village in the English countryside. Farming is its bread-and-butter. Race-horses are its beating heart. But beyond the rolling hills and behind the stable doors lies a green and not-so-pleasant land...
What makes it unpleasant? Maybe it's the teenagers who think it's funny to play chicken on top of silo machines that can cut your hand to slices no thicker than a piece of ham. Or maybe it's the group of mates who think that grain barn jumping – as reckless and as stupid as it sounds – is fun. Or perhaps the fact that twocking a car is just something that's done on a night out.
But now it's got serious – now someone has played murder.
When the body of a local teenage boy is found underneath the wheels of a tractor, the villagers in this remote community – his friends – are forced to open up their world and watch their secrets spill out. Secrets that will change their particular brand of country life forever.
