Filming starts on You Don’t Know Me
Filming gets underway this week on BBC One’s You Don’t Know Me, a four-part drama adapted from the book by barrister and novelist Imran Mahmood.
The book centres on a murder trial and a young man urgently recounting his version of events to a jury. Mahmood has said it was inspired by some of the young men he had defended in the past.
The novel was shortlisted for the Glass Bell Award in 2018, with The Guardian calling it one of the best crime novels of 2017, describing it as "an original take on a courtroom drama that puts the reader in the position of the jury... a gripping, vivid depiction of London’s gang culture with an authentic feel."
Snowed-In Productions was founded in 2014 to work alongside Bronte Film and Television on non-JK Rowling scripted projects. The company recently finished production on Too Close, and is developing a new iteration of The Midwich Cuckoos to film later this year for Sky.
