Black Mirror among projects wrapping
The fifth series of Black Mirror is among several TV projects that are due to wrap over the next few days.
Charlie Brooker’s dystopian satirical drama is due to land on Netflix next year – the streaming giant picked up the show in 2015 when it commissioned 12 new episodes to be delivered as Series 3 and 4.
Season 5 began filming in March with a production base at Ealing Studios.
Acorn TV’s original crime drama Queens of Mystery also wraps a 10-week shoot – filming took place in London and Kent. The show comes from Sly Fox Productions and centres on an eternally-single female detective and her three crime-writing aunts. Julie Graham, Siobhan Redmond, Sarah Woodward and Olivia Vinall star.
Other projects that have been filming around the UK recently and that are now heading towards post include Warren, a new comedy starring Martin Clunes that has been filming in Cardiff, and Gurinder Chadha’s period drama for ITV, Beecham House, which is ending a UK/India shoot.
Three returning shows are also wrapping: the second series of Derry Girls, Trust Me and Lee & Dean.
