Sky filming comedy Code 404
New Sky comedy Code 404 has started a six-week UK shoot with actors Stephen Graham and Daniel Mays.
The show follows a detective who is gunned down on the job, but then brought back to life with the help of advanced but glitchy artificial intelligence.
“Danny and Stephen are an electric double-act and with Daniel Peak’s brilliant scripts we can’t wait to bring this to life for Sky One,” said Tom Miller of Water & Power Productions.
Kudos is currently in pre-production on Deadwater Fell (w/t), the story of how a tragedy affects a small community in Scotland, and is also developing a third series of crime drama Tin Star that shot its previous two seasons in Canada.
Water & Power has additional productions in development for Channel 4 and the BBC.
