Sky crime drama to film in Liverpool

Liverpool Full Force, a new police drama, is lining up to film in Liverpool

The 6 x 60 comes from Vertigo Films in association with Company Pictures.

Set in London, the project will be directed by Vertigo’s Nick Love, best known for The Football Factory, The Firm and The Sweeney. 

PI subscribers can log in for more details on Full Force, including shoot dates and key hires such as the producer, line producer and production co-ordinator. 

Liverpool has long enjoyed a reputation as a world-class production hub – in 2015 it provided the only non-studio location for blockbuster Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, when some of the city’s grand civic buildings doubled for those of 1920s New York. 

It is also about to host the major Hollywood biopic, Tolkien, starring Nicholas Hoult as the iconic fantasy author. 

Earlier this year  the city housed BBC Two’s major new adaptation of China Mieville’s existential novel The City & The City, as well as ITV2 time-travel comedy Timewasters, which saw Liverpool once again double for London.
