ITV’s The Widow gets filming date
A filming date has been set for upcoming ITV drama The Widow, which is currently in pre-production at Two Brothers Pictures.
Harry and Jack Williams have written the eight-part drama that tells the story of Georgia, a woman who is forced to confront the truth about the fate of the man she was in love with.
The story takes place partly in Kinshasa, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and is scheduled to film in South Africa, the Netherlands and Wales.
Production Intelligence subscribers can log in now for details of the drama’s shoot date and for information on the key crew involved.
“Harry and Jack really are masters of complex emotional and unpredictable storytelling,” said Polly Hill, head of drama at ITV, when the series was first commissioned.
“The Widow is a brilliantly relevant, contemporary story that constantly surprises and I am delighted to have it on ITV. I think it will be a real treat for our audience.”
Two Brothers Pictures is currently filming drama series White Dragon, also for ITV, while second seasons of Liar and comedy hit Fleabag are both in development.
