Monster drama Jekyll and Hyde filmed Kent
New period monster drama Jekyll and Hyde spent a month filming in Kent with the support of Kent County Council's Film Office.
Written by Charlie Higson and inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, the new ten-part drama is set in 1930s London and tells the story of a descendant of Doctor Jekyll, who still has his grandfather's monstrous curse.
The production filmed in Kent for a month and spent £720,000 in the south-east county.
"As a Kent-based producer, it is always a pleasure to film in the county and work closely alongside the Kent Film Office," producer Foz Allan told Kent County Council.
"Although, we couldn't find a suitable studio space to base the entire production in Kent, the Film Office helped us find some great locations and introduced us to local contacts. The series has some great talent behind it and will be a thrilling watch."
Kent is a popular UK filming location. In recent years the county has hosted crime drama The Tunnel, an English-language version of Nordic noir series The Bridge. Jude Law's undersea feature Black Sea shot scenes on a former Soviet submarine known as the Black Widow that's now based in Medway, Kent.
