Descriptions What is BEDLAM? Welcome to Bedlam Heights: a hip, newly converted apartment building on the edge of a British metropolis. The high quality rental apartments offer stylish 21st century living, but behind the façade lie unimaginable horrors. For this former pre-Victorian asylum is haunted by the ghosts of its dark and violent past. Kate, who lives and works at Bedlam Heights, thinks anyone who believes in ghosts is a fool. Overly self-confident but ultimately self-destructive, she is surprised by the unexpected arrival of Jed – her adopted cousin. Jed is unique. With a history of mental illness, he’s a troubled man who sees ghosts and visions of the past. Recent messages to ‘Save Kate’ propel him back into Kate’s life. Gradually, Jed uncovers the terrifying secrets held in Bedlam Heights while trying to retain his sanity. He’s convinced Kate is in danger from the spooks of Bedlam, but unbeknownst to him, the truth will be far more terrifying… Together, Jed, Kate and their flat mates, Ryan and Molly, collide head-on with the lunacy of Bedlam Heights while simultaneously wrestling with another kind of madness altogether – a lively, messy and edgy world of relationships, responsibilities and friendship. Scratch the surface of this modern and original horror series with its thrilling and provocative scripts, ambitious casting and hugely talented directors, and you’ll find all is not quite as it seems…
