Who are the makers of the Sky series?

The series was written and created by Joe Barton, the writer/creator of the BBC crime series Giri/Haji.

Marco Kreuzpaintner, Akaash Meeda, and Laura Scrivano have also directed episodes of The Lazarus Project.

Talking to The Telegraph, Joe Barton explained that he was worried no one would watch the show as the first episode touches on a deadly pandemic.

However, he said there was much worse to come.

“Yeah what we should have been worried about was the next seven episodes,” Joe Barton says.

The next seven episodes will revolve around a missing nuclear warhead and a potential nuclear war started by tensions between Russia and Ukraine.

Joe Barton said: “We’ve taken out references to those countries- in fact, we had to change a lot at the 11th hour.

“We predicted the pandemic, we predicted the Ukraine.

“But if you pay attention, the stuff is always bubbling away.”

The Lazarus Project airs every Thursday on Sky Max/Now at 9pm.
