Brave New World films in Wales and London
A six-month shoot begins on 24 June on Brave New World in Wales and London.
The series comprises 10 x 60 episodes and comes from Amblin’ Television and Universal Content Productions for delivery to the USA Network.
The drama is adapted by David Wiener with Grant Morrison and Brian Taylor from Aldous Huxley’s groundbreaking 1932 novel; Owen Harris will direct the first episode and joins the roster of executive producers.
Alden Ehrenreich, Jessica Brown Findlay and Harry Lloyd star alongside Kylie Bunbury, Nina Sosanya and Hannah John-Kamen.
Wales continues to attract inward investment as well as domestic projects. Long-established as a film-friendly destination, its profile has been raised by the presence of Bad Wolf – makers of hefty shows including His Dark Materials and A Discovery of Witches.
