The State premieres


The series is a compelling drama, drawn on extensive factual research, about four young Britons who travel to Syria to join Isis.
The key characters are Jalal, 19, who’s following in his older brothers footsteps in deciding to fight for the terror group, and has persuaded his best friend Ziyaad to accompany him; Ushna, 18, a student, that has been radicalized online and is convinced that she must serve her religious duty; and Shakira, 26, a determined doctor willing to utilise her skills to help the cause while taking care of her nine-year-old son Isaac
The four-part series will air on consecutive nights over the course of the week, finishing on Wednesday 23 August on Channel 4.
