Production on new original thriller series The Red King has recently begun in the North East of England.
The six-part series, described as "character-driven mystery thriller", is written by Toby Whitehouse (Being Human, The Game) and produced by Quay Street Productions. It is supported by the North East Production Fund.
The Chronicle Live recently reported that TV cameras and crews were spotted in a Northumberland village filming for the crime drama. And adds Craster is providing the backdrop for the show.
On filming in the locale, North East Screen chief executive, Alison Gwynn said in a statement: “I am delighted to welcome Quay Street Productions to the North East to film their new original drama, The Red King. Having this production based in the region not only shows faith in the adaptability of our stunning locations, but also supports our highly-skilled crew who are based here, being able to work in the region and sleep in their own homes.
The Red King has been commissioned by UKTV for leading crime drama channel, Alibi.
