Jenna Coleman signs up for new drama, first picture

Filming is now underway on The Cry, the adaptation of Helen FitzGerald’s novel that’s heading to the BBC. Filming takes place in Scotland and Australia, and the drama is being headlined by Jenna Coleman and Ewen Leslie.

The BBC has now released the first picture of the production,  featuring Coleman, and that’s the picture you can see at the top there.

Jacquelin Perske has penned the adaptation, and Glendyn Ivin is directing.

Here’s the synopsis…

Joanna (Coleman) and her husband Alistair (Leslie), travel with their baby from Scotland to Australia to see Alistair’s mother, Elizabeth (Gonet) and to fight for custody of Alistair’s daughter Chloe (Kavenagh) against his Australian ex-wife Alexandra (Keddie). However, when they arrive in Australia, Joanna and Alistair are forced to face an unthinkable tragedy that changes their lives and their marriage forever. It is the catalyst for a journey into the disintegrating psychology of a young woman, exposing the myths and truths of motherhood.

The Cry will run for four episodes, and it’s expected on the BBC later this year.
