ITV’s The Bay gets second series
A second series of ITV drama The Bay will film later this year after the first secured a consolidated audience of seven million.
The first series starred Morven Christie as police family liaison officer DS Lisa Armstrong in the story of a missing person investigation in Morecambe Bay.
Tall Story Pictures produces and Daragh Carville writes.
“I am delighted with the audience response to The Bay,” said Polly Hill, head of drama for ITV.
“It’s very real and beautifully made by everyone involved and as a result it held an audience of seven million across six weeks. I think that audience will enjoy seeing where Daragh takes Lisa and the team, when they return with a new case for Series 2 next year.”
Tall Pictures wrapped a second series of the ITV crime thriller Bancroft at the end of last year.
