Next of Kin eyes spring shoot
Mammoth Screen’s contemporary thriller for ITV, Next of Kin, is moving towards pre-production in the next couple of weeks readying for a spring shoot.
PI subscribers can log in for shoot dates and key hires such as the producer, casting director, line producer and production manager.
Next of Kin is a 6 x 60 for ITV, one of a tranche of four announced last year under the new tenure of Polly Hill as the broadcaster’s head of drama.
The project marks the first collaboration between husband-and-wife writing team Paul Rutman (Indian Summers, Vera) and Natasha Narayan. The drama centres on psychologist Mona Mirza, whose seeming perfect life in London is turned upside down when she is drawn into a world of conspiracy and betrayal following the murder of her brother, killed while working for a charity overseas.
Mammoth Screen has several projects readying for production, including an adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Ordeal by Innocence, the fifth series of Endeavour and the BBC’s The City And The City.
