ITV’s Jekyll & Hyde in production at 3 Mills
Tom Bateman (Da Vinci’s Demons, The Tunnel), Richard E Grant (Downton Abbey, Dr Who) and Natalie Gumede (Coronation Street, Death In Paradise) join forces to star in Jekyll & Hyde, a brand new,
ten-part action adventure drama, to be dramatised by ITV Studios.
From an idea conceived by acclaimed novelist Charlie Higson, the action and fantasy series has been inspired by The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. Higson has written and will executive produce the drama which exudes mystery, fantasy, horror and sci-fi.
Set in 1930’s London at a time of Hollywood glamour, aerodynamic cars and monster movies, the drama will pay homage to the Stevenson novel, and focus on the young, attractive, troubled hero, Robert Jekyll, the grandson of the original doctor.
Jekyll & Hyde will be directed by Colin Teague (Being Human, The Town, Sinbad) with production in Sri Lanka commencing later this month and filming in London and at 3 Mills Studios from February until July 2015.
