Filming begins in Manchester, Liverpool and Wales shortly for a brand new series of the ITV drama Safe House which sees
Hollywood star Stephen Moyer returns to the UK to take the lead role
Safe House, produced by leading independent production company Eleventh Hour Films, commences filming for ITV later this month with an all new cast and crime story.
The four part hour long series stars Moyer as charismatic yet impulsive ex-police officer Tom Brook who runs a police safe house, which stands by the edge of the sea on the rugged coastline of Anglesey, a wild and beautiful sanctuary.
Stephen will be joined by actress Zoe Tapper as his partner Sam. The drama is written by Ed Whitmore and Tracey Malone and directed by Marc Evans.
Tom and Sam’s world is turned upside down when news of a shocking crime breaks. Years previously Tom investigated a series of abductions perpetrated by an assailant known as ‘The Crow’, who took wives away from husbands as they helplessly watched.
On hearing breaking news of a crime bearing the same hallmarks Tom immediately goes to the crime scene, revealing to the police that terrifyingly he believes ‘The Crow’ is active again.
ITV’s Controller of Drama Victoria Fea and Head of Drama Series Jane Hudson have commissioned this second series.
“We’re delighted to be working on a brand new series of Safe House with Eleventh Hour Films,” said Victoria. “The format lends itself beautifully to creating a suspenseful drama with a new set of characters in a new safe house. As always Ed and Tracey’s scripts are gripping and compelling with twists and turns that shock and take you by surprise.”
