Kudos to film new drama this summer
Prolific production company Kudos is working on a shiny new series readying to film this summer.
Man in An Orange Shirt is a two-part original drama from novelist and screenwriter Patrick Gale, and is set within two timeframes, the 1940s and the present day. The different decades provide a backdrop against which the challenges faced by gay male couples of the times are played out.
Subscribers to Production Intelligence can log in to follow the project; the producer’s name is listed already with the confirmed line producer attachment to be announced very soon.
Having just wrapped the 4 x 60 for BBC One, Apple Tree Yard, Kudos is also busy on the third series of ITV’s hit crime drama Broadchurch, with the producer and line producer now detailed on PI; the second series of Humans for Channel 4 which begins shooting next week and the Canada-set crime drama for Sky Atlantic, Tin Star, filming in Calgary. Further away for the shingle is BBC One’s Troy – Fall of a City, currently eyeing an end-of-year shoot.
