Harlan Coben’s Safe films this summer
Harlan Coben’s next TV drama to film in the UK is now in pre-production with shooting due to be underway later in the summer.
Previously called The Four, Safe comes from Red Production Company and is a standalone, character-driven thriller about a family community left devastated by secrets and lies.
The drama is for delivery to Netflix and Canal+, and is created by Coben with Danny Brocklehurst – a regular Red collaborator - also on writing duty.
PI subscribers can log in for more details on Safe, including the filming location, dates and key hires such as the casting director, line producer, first-block director, production designer and production co-ordinator.
Shooting will run for five months on the hefty drama, which comprises 8 x 60 and which follows the success of best-selling novelist Coben’s first original TV project, The Five, which aired on Sky 1 and which filmed in Liverpool.
Red is also busy on another Brocklehust project, Come Home – details on PI – and has an adaptation of Henry James’ The Portrait of a Lady in development.
