Inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, the show is created by The Fast Show writer Charlie Higson.

Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell star Enzo Cilenti told CultBox recently that Jekyll and Hyde will be “very chic, very funny” and has “loads of action”.

The official synopsis reads: “At the heart of the drama is Robert Jekyll’s quest to discover his real identity, his true family history and the nature of his ‘curse’. Jekyll transforms into Hyde in moments of extreme anger, stress and when his or the lives of others are threatened.”
