15 Days begins filming in Wales
Four-part crime thriller 15 Days has begun principal photography in Wales.
The drama is an adaptation of S4C’s Welsh-language production 35 Diwrnod. It begins with a brutal murder and then reverses the narrative to go back over the preceding 15 days.
The drama has been commissioned by C5 and comes from prolific Cardiff production company Boom Cymru, known for titles such as Border Lives and Inside My Brain.
15 Days is co-funded by Channel 5, ITV Studios global Entertainment and the Welsh Government.
Production Intelligence has details of the key production personnel on board.
Welsh-made drama has been enjoying a resurgence in recent years. The second series of bilingual thriller Keeping Faith – known as Un Bore Mercher in Welsh - is coming to the end of a five-month shoot, with the first series having won three Welsh BAFTAs last year.
Production company Bad Wolf has also raised the country’s film-friendly profile with the establishment of Wolf Studios near Cardiff. The Bad Wolf team is currently working on Series 2 of His Dark Materials, the second and third series of A Discovery of Witches and fashion drama Gold Dust Nation.
