Finding Alice begins production
Filming begins this week on Finding Alice, a new ITV drama created by Roger Goldby, Keeley Hawes and Simon Nye.
The 6 x 60 is produced by Red Production Company in association with Bright Pictures TV, Buddy Club Productions and Genial Productions.
It centres on Alice (played by Hawes) whose husband dies suddenly after falling down the stairs of their new house. His accidental demise leaves Alice facing a tangle of debt and criminality.
Goldby, Nye and Hawes executive produce alongside Nicola Shindler for Red, who said at the time of the greenlight news: “When Keeley, Roger and Simon came to me with Finding Alice I was so excited to find a project about a complex, flawed and funny woman in such extreme circumstances who I felt an audience would fall in love with.
"This is exactly the kind of drama I love to make at Red and look forward to starting shooting.”
Margot Gavan Duffy produces; the directors are Goldby and Juliet May. PI subscribers can log in for more on the key production personnel.
