Industry begins filming in Wales
A major new drama set against the backdrop of the banking world, Industry, begins filming this week in Wales.
The 8 x 60 project is from Bad Wolf/HBO and is set in an American bank in London.
Filming will be based at Pinewood Studios Wales, which will now be used by Bad Wolf for the next twelve months, with an option to extend for another two years.
Since it was founded in 2015 by longtime collaborators Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner, Bad Wolf has upped the already film-friendly profile of Wales.
The company has established Wolf Studios, a filming facility near Cardiff with five sound stages totalling 125,000 sq ft.
Bad Wolf is also busy in production on the second series of A Discovery of Witches and in pre-production on Series 2 of His Dark Materials.
