Slow Horses begins second lengthy UK shoot
A lengthy shoot on the second filming tranche of Apple TV+’s Slow Horses has just begun in London, to be delivered as Series 3 and 4.
From See-Saw Films, it is based on Mick Herron’s Slough House spy thrillers.
Gary Oldman plays Jackson Lamb, a washed-up spy who, after a botched mission, ends up in MI5’s dumping ground, Slough House, where the service rejects are known as ‘slow horses’. Jack Lowden and Kristin Scott Thomas are among the starry cast.
The third series centres on the disgraced group attempting to foil a rogue agent when one of their own team is kidnapped, and the fourth opens with a bombing.
As with the first run, which formed S1 and S2, the production will shoot for 10-11 months and then tx as two series of six episodes each.
See-Saw is also busy on One Life, a feature film about Nicholas Winton, who helped rescue hundreds of children from the Nazis on the eve of WWII. Anthony Hopkins plays Winton with Johnny Glynn co-starring. Two more series of Heartstopper are also in the pipeline.
Full details on both Slow Horses and One Life - including key HoD names and exact shoot dates - can be found on Production Intelligence, our subscriber-only database of feature films and TV dramas at various stages of production in the UK. For a free demo request, click here.
