BBC Two wants more Guilt

  • News

Guilt BBC Two and BBC Scotland have greenlit another series of Guilt, co-produced by Expectation and Happy Tramp North. 

Neil Forsyth returns to write the drama with the second run comprising 4 x 60 eps; filming will take place in Scotland later this year. 

The first series starred Mark Bonnar and Jamie Sives as two disparate brothers, united by guilt when they accidentally run over and kill an old man on a darkened street. Other cast included Emun Elliot, Bill Paterson, Sian Brooke, Ruth Bradley and Ellie Haddington. Casting for series two will be announced in the coming months.

Patrick Holland, Controller, BBC Two, says: “Neil Forsyth’s Guilt was a dark gem in last year’s schedules and I am delighted that the team is returning for a new series. It was a real treat to have Neil’s sharp writing and the wonderful performances, weaving a brilliant tale of lies, deception and skulduggery. Audiences across the UK await series two with relish.”

The second series will be executive produced by Nel Webster for Happy Tramp North and Nerys Evans for Expectation.
