Filming underway on The Capture
Filming has begun in London on a major new conspiracy drama called The Capture starring Callum Turner and Holliday Grainger.
Heyday Television and NBCUniversal International Studios are producing the show that comes from writer-director Ben Chanan and begins with the unjust arrest of an innocent man.
Chanan also executive produces along with David Heyman and Rosie Alison for Heyday Television, Ben Irving or BBC One and Tom Coan for NBCUniversal International Studios.
The writer said of the commission when it was announced: "I am delighted to be joining forces with BBC Drama and Heyday on The Capture: a wronged-man conspiracy thriller inspired by urgent questions about surveillance, misinformation and the murky ethics of video-fakery.”
The Capture is one of several dramas currently filming in the capital, alongside Gangs of London, Four Weddings and a Funeral, MotherFatherSon, Queens of Mystery and Temple.
