Embracing Despair to Find Hope

After the sudden disappearance of his son Edgar, Vincent spirals into a world of -loathing, guilt, and distress. He latches onto his son's sketches of a blue monster puppet named ERIC. Convinced that getting ERIC on TV will bring back Edgar, Vincent embarks on a journey filled with hope and desperation.

Vincent's erratic behavior progressively alienates those around him — his family, coworkers, even the detectives trying to help him. In all this turmoil, it is Eric, a delusion born out of necessity, that becomes his only ally in his to bring Edgar home.

Executive producers Featherstone and Dyke shared their excitement about the project with Netflix. They said, “When Abi first pitched Eric to us, it gave us goosebumps. It's an extraordinary piece of writing, inspired by Abi's experience of New York in the mid-1980s, a city rotten to its core but on the cusp of change.”

‘Eric' offers an emotional, heart-wrenching journey of a father's relentless pursuit to find his missing son. With a formidable cast and a promising storyline, it beckons viewers to immerse themselves in a world where hope meets despair.
