Keeping Faith 2 readies to film in Wales
The second series of Vox Pictures’ critically-acclaimed bilingual drama Keeping Faith is gearing up to begin active prep in Wales.
Filmed in both English and Welsh, and shown on BBC Wales and S4C (as Un Bore Mercher) respectively, the thriller stars Eve Myles as a solicitor whose husband disappears while she is on maternity leave.
Nick Andrews, head of commissioning for BBC Wales, said when the second run was announced: “This series has been a real gem from start to finish - and it’s testament to the strength of drama coming out of Wales right now.”
The show is created and written by Matthew Hall and films in various Welsh locations including Carmarthen, Laugharne and Swansea.
Production Intelligence subscribers can log in for shoot dates on Keeping Faith 2 and details on key production personnel including the producers, line producer and production designer.
Wales has been enjoying a film-friendly profile for some years and has become an international production hub, currently hosting shows such as Sky Atlantic’s Roman-era drama Britannia and Bad Wolf’s major adaptation of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials.
