Cold Feet 3 readies to film
The third series of Cold Feet is gearing up for a spring start to filming in Manchester.
The ITV comedy drama is once again based at Space Studios Manchester (previously known as The Space Project) where pre-production is underway on the 6 x 60 run.
Production Intelligence subscribers can log in for more details on Cold Feet Series 3 including the shoot dates and key hires such as the two producers, the line producer and the production designer.
Following a £14m expansion last year, Space Studios now has more than 85,000 sq ft of stages – effectively double the previous size of the complex overall. It has housed productions such as Houdini & Doyle, The A Word and Dragons’ Den.
Studio space in the UK continues to be in high demand with a capacity review currently underway from the BFI and Film London.
The purple patch in film and TV production look set to continue as non-linear platforms and SVoD services utilise the UK’s generous tax breaks, world-class crew and varied locations.
