ITV and the Kudos production company are gearing up to film in Cumbria next month. They’ll be shooting Deep Water, a six-part drama based on a collection of novels by Paul Daly. The books are set around the Lake Windermere segment of the Lake District, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see filming occurring in similar locations.
Anna Symon of Indian Summers and The Wilsons has adapted these books into six 60-minute TV episodes. When the project was announced, ITV’s Polly Hill summed it up thusly:
“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.”
This show sounds like an intriguing prospect, which could have some really interesting character dynamics. We’ll certainly be interested to see what Deep Water looks like when it’s finished.
The industry experts at The Knowledge Online report that filming on Deep Water will begin in early September. As of yet, we don’t know who will star in the series. That announcement can’t be far off, though, so we’ll let you know as soon as we see it.
