BBC One’s Come Home films next week
Filming begins next week in Northern Ireland on Come Home, a new BBC One drama from Danny Brocklehurst.
The prolific TV writer continues his longtime collaboration with Red Production Company on the 3 x 60, which will shoot for eight weeks in Northern Ireland.
The drama stars Christopher Eccleston and Paula Malcolmson, and deals with the shattering fallout when Malcolmson’s character leaves her husband and their three children.
Nicola Shindler’s production company Red has worked with Brocklehurst several times in the past, on productions such as Ordinary Lies, The Five, The Driver and Exile. Red is currently in production on Safe, created by Harlan Coben and written by Coben and Brocklehurst.
Come Home is executive produced by Shindler, Brocklehurst and Tommy Bulfin for the BBC with Madonna Baptiste producing.
Bulfin previously said of the commission: "It’s a joy to welcome Red, Danny and Chris [Eccleston] to Northern Ireland, and welcome Paula back to film in her home town of Belfast to work with some of the best local creative talent. Come Home continues the success of BBC drama production in Northern Ireland.”
Production Intelligence first listed Come Home in February this year, with the BBC confirming it in September. Non-subscribers can click here to request a free online demo.
