Intergalactic starts filming in Manchester

Sky logo Intergalactic, a new sci-fi comedy drama about a group of rogue female criminals, starts filming at Space Studios Manchester this week.  

The 10 x 60 for Sky One is written by Julie Gearey and set in the 23rd century when Earth’s space empire exiles its prisoners off-planet.

It centres on Ash, a young flight cadet wrongly imprisoned who gets embroiled in a prison break-out and goes on the run with a disparate gang of women. 

At the time of commissioning, showrunner Gearey said: “With a fierce, funny ensemble at its heart, Intergalactic’s got everything I love about science fiction – action, adventure, monsters - but with its feet firmly on the ground. It’s been a joy to write and I’m excited to have such a creative team to bring it to life."

Moonage Pictures and Motion Content Group produce Intergalactic in association with Tiger Aspect Productions. Kieron Hawkes directs; the executive producers are Will Gould, Iona Vrolyk, Gearey, Frith Tiplady, Matthew Read, Richard Foster and Tony Moulsdale. 

Production Intelligence subscribers have had regular updates on the show since February including a round-up of the key HoDs on board. Click here to request a free demo of PI.
