Bedlam is being made by Red Production Company, the indie behind BBC2’s recent Boy George biopic Worried About the Boy.
The 6 x 60-minute series is due to air early in 2011 and is set in Bedlam Heights, a former pre-Victorian asylum block which frightens residents with a string of scary supernatural visits following its conversion into an apartment building.
Claudia Rosencrantz, Living TV’s director of television, said she had been hunting for “ages” to find the right original drama idea for the channel.
“Bedlam is the perfect fit. It’s sexy, stylish and truly scary. It is about very frightening things happening to very beautiful people,” said Rosencrantz.
The role marks Will Young's first major regular drama role but he has had previous acting experience appearing in the 2005 film Mrs Henderson Presents, guest starring in Skins and ITV's Miss Marple: The Mirror Crack'd Side to Side.
