Little Birds starts filming for Sky
Drama Little Birds has started filming for Sky, with shoot locations scheduled to include Manchester and Spain over 14 weeks.
Set in Tangier in 1955, the six-part drama tells the story of a young woman who finds her horizons broadened when her life becomes entwined with that of a dominatrix and her powerful clients.
Produced by Warp Films, the series is written by Sophia Al-Maria and directed by Stacie Passon.
Warp is also developing a film version of the hit West End musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, which is based on the true story of a 16-year-old boy who wants to be a drag queen.
In recent years, the company has been involved with supernatural anthology movie Ghost Stories, directed by Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman, and Idris Elba’s Yardie.
