Born to Kill gears up again
Channel 4’s psychological thriller Born to Kill is about to enter pre-production with principal photography due to get underway in late November.
The drama had originally been lined up to film in the summer, although it will still utilise the original planned Cardiff locations.
The 4 x 60 comes from World Productions and marks the TV debut of writer Kate Ashfield, who has penned the show alongside Tracey Malone (Silent Witness). It explores the mind of a teenage boy trying to suppress psychopathic desires as he falls in love for the first time, while his family and the local community remain unaware of what he is capable of.
Shoot dates are listed on Production Intelligence along with the names of key names including the director and line producer.
World Productions is also busy on the fourth series of Line of Duty, currently filming in Belfast, and is in development on Jed Mecurio’s forthcoming police protection drama, Bodyguard.
All these productions are listed on PI; non-subscribers can click here to book a free online demo.
