Netflix has dropped the official Eric poster and first-look photos for its upcoming limited drama, starring Oscar nominee Benedict Cumberbatch in his first major scripted series in a long while after leading 2018’s Patrick Melrose. The miniseries will start streaming on May 30.

“Set in 1980s New York, the limited drama follows the desperate search of a father when his nine year old son disappears one morning on the way to school,” reads the synopsis. “Vincent, one of New York’s leading puppeteers and creator of the hugely popular children’s television show, ‘Good Day Sunshine,’ struggles to cope with the loss of his son, Edgar, becoming increasingly distressed and volatile. Full of self-loathing and guilt around Edgar’s disappearance, he clings to his son’s drawings of a blue monster puppet, Eric, convinced that if he can get Eric on TV then Edgar will come home. As Vincent’s progressively destructive behavior alienates his family, his work colleagues, and the detectives trying to help him, it’s Eric, a delusion of necessity, who becomes his only ally in the pursuit to bring his son home.”
