Netflix is teasing the new thriller series Eric, starring Benedict Cumberbatch. The streaming service shared a trailer for the show featuring Cumberbatch, who ‘plays a desperate father whose world becomes unraveled.’

Eric, written and created by Abi Morgan (‘The Iron Lady’, ‘Shame’) and directed Lucy Forbes (‘This is Going to Hurt’), stars Cumberbatch as New York puppeteer Vincent, the creator of the hit children’s show Good Day Sunshine, whose life unravels when his nine-year-old son, Edgar, goes missing on the way to school. The trailer shows Vincent create Eric, a blue monster puppet inspired by his son’s drawings, and become convinced that the puppet is the key to bringing Edgar home.

Showrunner Morgan told Netflix’s Tudum that “Eric is a dark and crazy journey into the heart of 1980s New York — and the good, bad, and ugly world of Vincent.” Gaby Hoffmann, McKinley Belcher III and Ivan Howe also star.

Eric premieres May 30; take a look at the trailer: here.
