Edge Of Tomorrow is a serial drama published on Lit since 12 September 2018. The serial is set on the fictional Isle of Rowley, a small Island on the south coast. Creator, producer and writer Ben described the show as 'close-knit, character-driven and bold' in the first press release published on Lit on 22 August 2018.
Edge Of Tomorrow follows a tight-knit community of people living on the fictional island of Rowley in the English Channel. In terms of the tone of the project, EOT aims to strike the balance between warmth and community with grit and edge.
Title Card Edit
The title card pictured on the right is the main title card used in the serial. Speaking about the design Ben said
"I wanted the title card to be very much rooted in the setting of the show - the Island - and that's why I selected a beach as the main background image; I think the colour scheme I have chosen for the project fits in nicely with the warm colours generated by the sunset in the image. I used a bolder font on the word 'Edge' to hint at the grittier side to the project. It took a while to get the title card 'right' but I am now happy with it" he explained.
A short promo was released on 5 September 2018. Paula Girvan (MyAnna Buring), Shane Grant (Chris Mason), Terry Lowe (Chris Gascoyne), Harriet Black (Caroline Ford), and Kristine Henderson (Sheridan Smith) are among the characters to appear in the promo which gives further hints as to what these characters will be getting up to the in soap following publication of the Characters thread last week.
Theme Music Edit
An instrumental version of 'Give Your Heart A Break' by Demi Lovato is used in the closing credits. Speaking about the decision to use this track Ben said "I love Demi's music and GYHAB is one of my top pop songs of all time. I think the gentle melody and the punchy beats juxtapose each other well and really capture what Edge Of Tomorrow is all about - a beautiful coastal setting contrasting with some 'edgy', 'bold' and 'gritty' stories. Plus, the track is the second single from Demi's Unbroken Album and Unbroken Pictures produces Edge Of Tomorrow, so it's perfect!
Episode Format Edit
Each episode beings with a recap of the previous episode. The first scene(s) of every episode is invariably a montage accompanied by extra-diegetic music - that is music which is not part of the action: the audience can hear it, but it does not exist in the world of the characters. A 'next time' preview is also feature of the end of every episode, teasing what's to come next.
