Staff Reporter | On 02, May 2020
Daniel Kaluuya and Constance Wu are among the star names to be found in DUST, a new collection of short films released by All 4 today.
DUST has swiftly established itself as sci-fi brand to pay attention to. It recently released its second narrative podcast, Flight 008, which, in less than 15 days, climbed Apple’s Top 50 Podcasts charts and has held the #2 position on Apple’s Top Fiction Podcasts and Top Science Fiction Podcasts list for the past three weeks. It is also recently dropped ALTER’s 50 States of Fright, an anthology exec-produced by Sam Raimi, on new streaming platform Quibi. Now, it’s teaming up with Channel 4’s free streaming platform to showcase some of the sci-fi genre’s brightest talents.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with All 4 to bring DUST to their passionate, digitally savvy audience, and can’t wait to see how our programming resonates with the U.K. fans,” said Janet Brown, EVP Acquisitions and Global Distribution at Gunpowder & Sky, the indie studio behind DUST.
