ITV’s Deep Water drama to film in North West England
ITV’s newly commissioned series, Deep Water, will shoot on location in Cumbria, North West England. Principal photography for the Kudos (Gunpowder) produced drama will begin in autumn this year, with a total of six episodes scheduled for production.
Adapted from Paula Daly’s Windermere series of novels, the new series will be written by Anna Symon and internationally distributed by Endemol Shine International.
Polly Hill, ITV’s Head of Drama details: “Anna has cleverly woven together two of Paula’s brilliant novels to create a wonderful modern and layered series. It’s about three very different women on their own incredible and often shocking journeys, whose lives connect at the school gates. It’s funny, sexy, truthful and often outrageous, and should have the audience asking what they would do to hold their own family together. I am delighted to be working with Kudos on this great new series for ITV.”
Karen Wilson, Chief Creative Officer for Kudos and Executive Producer adds: “we are thrilled to be working with Anna and ITV on bringing these wonderful books to life and telling stories about modern women in an interesting and beautiful part of rural Britain.”
With a population of just under half a million people, Cumbria is one of the most sparsely populated non-metropolitan counties in the UK. Filled with expansive scenes of untouched countryside, Cumbria is an ideal filming location and has been recently featured in Paddington 2 and BBC’s The A Word.
High-end television productions that spend at least GBP1 million per-broadcast hour within the UK can receive a 25% tax rebate. This incentive has propelled the UK’s production industry to be worth over GBP1 billion each year.
