ITV2 have announced the commission of Switch, a new drama series about four young 20-something witches living in London.
Written by Chloe Moss (Skins) and Tim Price (Secret Diary of a Call Girl), the six-part “vibrant, colourful, romantic and energetic drama” will star Lacey Turner (EastEnders), Nina Toussaint-White (Doctor Who), Phoebe Fox (Black Mirror) and Hannah Tointon (The Inbetweeners).
Laura Mackie from ITV’s Drama Commissioning team commented: “Switch is a contemporary series about friendship with a spell-binding twist. Chloe and Tim have created four fun-loving, free-spirited characters and we’re delighted with the direction the series takes.”
Executive producer Rob Pursey (Being Human) added: “We’re delighted to be working with ITV2 and with Tim and Chloe to create this really exciting new series. Switch is an upbeat, funny drama about four young witches trying to make their way in the big city. They want to live a modern life, not one based on their mothers’ old-fashioned rituals. But modern life presents serious problems, and our girls can’t help casting the occasional spell to try to sort things out…”
Filming will begin next month for 11 weeks in London, Cardiff and Bristol.
Lacey Turner will next be seen in Series 2 of Sky Living’s Bedlam, which begins this spring.
