UK spring shoot for full series of Guilt
Following an hour-long pilot which filmed in the UK earlier this year, Guilt has had a full series order, with shooting anticipated to take place in the spring.
ABC Family has greenlit the drama, which centres on an American girl called Grace (played by Daisy Head, pictured) who becomes embroiled in the brutal murder of her roommate while staying in London. The series comes from Lionsgate, with executive producer Gary Goodman on board as executive producer.
We expect to have more information soon on the other production companies and HoDs involved in this nine-episode run, so make sure you're following the project on PI. Locations-wise, London and Manchester are both on the shortlist.
