Deep Water gears up for autumn
A new ITV drama set in the Lake District is set to begin filming in early September.
Deep Water is a six-part relationship drama from Kudos, exploring the lives of three women who live in and around Lake Windermere.
Screenwriter Anna Symon (Indian Summers, The Wilsons) has adapted the show as a 6 x 60 from the Windermere series of novels by Paula Daly. Filming will take place in Cumbria.
When the commission was announced, ITV head of drama Polly Hill said: “Anna has cleverly woven together two of Paula’s brilliant novels, to create a wonderful modern and layered series.
“It’s about three very different women on their own incredible and often shocking journeys, whose lives connect at the school gates. It’s funny, sexy, truthful and often outrageous, and should have the audience asking what they would do to hold their own family together.”
