This was the non-broadcast pilot of a show that would go on to become 'Tripped'. The full series features an adjusted premise and different cast and crew: Guide

E4 comedy drama pilot described as "a mind-bending and hilarious tumble down a 21st century rabbit hole where the imaginary becomes real, where the unlikely becomes the inevitable and where the worst case scenario is actually only just the beginning..."

ALT follows 24-year-old pragmatic everyman Danny who's about to move in with his girlfriend Suzy. Also Danny's stoner and waster ex-best friend Milo.

Suddenly finding themselves transported to a parallel universe where they encounter different versions of themselves, the pair soon realise dangerous assassins seem intent on hunting them down and killing them.

With Danny desperate to get back to his own Suzy before it's too late and he loses her forever, they embark on a series of darkly comic and dangerous adventures in an effort to get back home.

"There are thousands of worlds out there. All with a version of you and a version of me. And someone is trying to kill us. All of us..."

"Imagine: that mate you dumped months ago because he's a tool, rings you out of the blue and asks for help. You go round and he's tripping. Banging on about parallel worlds and killers with swords and you're not really listening to be honest. And the next thing you know the world's changed. Literally changed. Your girlfriend, who was kind of the love of your life, no longer even recognises you. Dead relatives are suddenly alive again. And someone who looks just like you is living your life. Badly."
