Sky 1 is teaming up again with bestselling crime writer Harlan Coben to bring another story to the small screen. 'The Four' is an eight-part thriller that follows on from 'The Five', which was Coben's first original story for TV.

'The Five' aired on Sky 1 in April to widespread critical acclaim.

'The Four' is described as a standalone, character-driven thriller that sees an idyllic family community become irrevocably shattered by secrets, lies, suspicions and misguided trust.

"I am incredibly proud of what we all achieved with 'The Five'," Coben said. "Our goal from the start was to create a gripping crime drama that moved you, surprised you – and had a shocking and emotionally satisfying ending.

"I never wanted to make a sequel to 'The Five' – that story has now been told – but rather, to start fresh and bring a whole new crime drama to the screen. Working with Nicola [Shindler, of Red Production Company] and Sky again was essential to ensure that creatively, 'The Four' is brought to life in the way that we have imagined."

Cameron Roach from Sky Drama added: "We are ambitious for our dramas to be much-loved and talked-about events for our customers and 'The Five' delivered on that. The world-class storytelling of Harlan, combined with strong screenplays from Danny Brocklehurst and high-quality production from Red, is an intoxicating combination. We are looking forward to 'The Four' gaining its own place in the Sky original drama portfolio."
