Filming imminent on Temple
Playwright Mark O’Rowe (Boy A) has written the series that comes from Liza Marshall’s Hera Pictures for delivery to Sky One.
Mark Strong plays Daniel, a surgeon who, driven by personal tragedy, sets up an illegal clinic in a disused network of tunnels beneath the streets of London. Carice van Houten and Daniel Mays co-star.
“Mark O’Rowe has created a complex and multi-faceted character in Daniel - a man pushed to the extreme as his world is radically destabilised. Temple is a gripping and humane morality tale for our time”, said Strong.
Barney Reisz produces, working alongside directors Luke Snellin, Shariff Korver and Lisa Siwe.
For more on the key production personnel involved in the five-month shoot, log into Production Intelligence, where the project was first listed in March.
The executive producers on Temple are Marshall, Strong, O’Rowe, Gabriel Silver and Anne Mensah.
Temple is one of several scripted projects from UK companies that begin filming next week; others include Catherine The Great with Helen Mirren, Line of Duty 5 and Billie Piper’s directorial feature debut Rare Beasts.
