Based on the bestselling novel by Robert Harris, the story follows a computer scientist and genius who hopes to make billions from an AI-driven system that exploits fear in the financial markets.
Everything is thrown into disarray following a vicious attack that forces him to question everything he sees, and believes he is being framed.

“The Fear Index” will begin filming this month in Hungary and will air on Sky Atlantic.
