Here’s a look at the trailer and cast details for the new E4 comedy series Dead Pixels, which premieres on UK television in 2019.
The show follows three friends, Meg, Nicky and Usman, who all appear pretty addicted to playing a popular fantasy online role playing game called ‘Kingdom Scrolls’, which is set in a world full of wizards, wyverns and orcs. For this trio, the world of MMORPGs is far more fun and important than the real world, which includes flatmate Alison. Divided between the real world and the gaming world, Dead Pixels mixes live action video and computer animation.
