Harlots Series 2 sets filming dates
The second series of bawdy period drama Harlots has set filming dates and is confirming key crew in preparation for an autumn shoot.
The series was created by Moira Buffini and Alison Newman, and is set among the brothels of late 19th century London at a time when many women’s choices of earning a living came down to marrying 'well' or working as a prostitute.
The drama is loosely based on Hallie Rubenhold’s book, The Covent Garden Ladies. The first series aired on ITV Encore and Hulu and starred Samantha Morton, Lesley Manville and Jessica Brown Findlay.
It was shot largely at Langleybury Mansion, a country manor house near Watford that has provided backdrops for many TV dramas and feature films including Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea in 2015.
Harlots comes from Monumental Pictures, the company founded by producers Alison Owen and Debra Hayward, which currently has a busy development slate with several feature films in the pipeline including an adaptation of Caitlin Moran’s How to Build a Girl.
