Netflix’s upcoming emotional crime drama, Eric, delves deep into the heart-wrenching journey of a father’s desperate search when his nine-year-old son disappears one fateful morning on his way to school.

Vincent, played by none other than Benedict Cumberbatch, is a renowned puppeteer and the creative genius behind the beloved children’s TV show “Good Day Sunshine.” 

But Vincent’s world shatters when his son, Edgar, goes missing. 

Set against the backdrop of 1980s New York, Eric promises to take viewers on a dark and gripping journey through the highs and lows of Vincent’s tumultuous life.

Struggling to cope with the loss of his son, Vincent descends into a spiral of despair and guilt. 

Convinced that bringing his son’s favorite puppet, Eric, to life on TV will somehow lead Edgar home, Vincent clings to this delusion amidst his increasingly destructive behavior. 

As Vincent’s world crumbles around him, Eric becomes his only ally in the relentless pursuit to find his son.

But Eric is more than just a gripping crime drama—it’s a poignant exploration of the socio-political landscape of 1980s New York. 

Against the backdrop of rising crime rates, internal corruption, racism, and the AIDS epidemic, Eric exposes the raw divisions that plague society. 

Through the lens of a father’s unwavering love, the series raises profound questions about where the real monsters lurk.

Joining Cumberbatch in this riveting tale are talented actors Gaby Hoffmann as Cassie, McKinley Belcher III as lead detective Ledroit, and Ivan Howe as the young Edgar.
