Kaos is a British fantasy series that offers a modern-day interpretation of Greek mythology. The narrative revolves around six individuals who unravel the intricate connection of their destinies through an ancient prophecy.
Described as a “darkly comedic and contemporary reimagining of Greek mythology,” the series delves into themes such as gender politics, power dynamics, and life in the underworld. Zeus, the king of the gods, becomes consumed by worry as he detects a troubling wrinkle in the fabric of fate, one that could spell the end of the world itself. Unbeknownst to them, six ordinary humans, unaware of their significance or their connection to each other, discover that they are integral components of this ancient prophecy. The critical question arises: Will they uncover the truth about the gods and their impact on humanity? And, if they do, will they possess the ability to thwart the divine forces at play?
Kaos is currently in development and being penned by Charlie Covell, with additional writing contributions from Georgia Christou for episode six. The series boasts the creative talents of lead director Georgi Banks-Davies, celebrated for their work on productions like I Hate Suzie and Paper Girls. Runyararo Mapfumo is set to direct block 2 of the show.
Kaos is brought to life by Sister, the production company responsible for notable projects like HBO’s acclaimed mini-series Chernobyl and the short-lived Netflix co-production Giri/Haji.
Elsayed first gained prominence in his starring role in the 2012 movie My Brother the Devil, which earned him a nomination for the Best Rising British Talent Award at the London Film Festival.
