Trust Me to film in Scotland in January
BBC One’s new character-led thriller, Trust Me, is gearing up to shoot in and around Edinburgh early next year.
The four-parter comes from Red Production Company and centres on Cathy, a nurse who loses her job for being a whistleblower. Forced to take drastic action to provide for her daughter, she steals her best friend’s identity as a doctor in Edinburgh and begins her new life of deceit.
Trust Me is written by Dan Sefton, whose credits include Mr Selfridge and Gates. Sefton also penned Delicious, a new drama for Sky 1 starring Dawn French, which wrapped a Cornwall shoot around a month ago.
PI subscribers can log in for shoot dates and HoDs on Trust Me including the line producer and production designer.
Red’s Nicola Shindler exec produces with BBC Scotland’s Gaynor Holmes. Emily Feller produces.
Scotland is also hosting Clique, a BBC Three drama from Balloon Entertainment, the third series of Outlander and feature film The Wife starring Glenn Close and Christian Slater.
