PR drama films in London with Anna Paquin

Anna Paquin PR drama Flack begins filming in London next week starring Anna Paquin as a PR expert. 

Hat Trick Productions is the UK producer on the drama, working alongside Paquin’s LA-based production company CASM.

The 6 x 60 is for entertainment channel W and was co-commissioned by UKTV and Pop. 

Actor/producer/writer Oliver Lansley has penned the show, which is produced by Mark Talbot. Peter Cattaneo directs the first of two blocks of filming. 

Production Intelligence has details of the shoot dates and key HoDs including the second-block director, production designer, line producer, location manager and casting director. 

Paquin, who is also on the team of executive producers, said of the commission: “Oliver Lansley has written six of the best scripts I've ever read. He walks that fine line between intense character-driven drama and exceptionally intelligent humour.”
