Filming Commences On New Drama Series

News Image
Filming has commenced on a new drama series by Vox Pictures. The eight-part thriller, Un Bore Mercher/Keeping Faith, is a joint commission by BBC Wales and S4C.

Part-funded through the Welsh Government's Media Investment Budget, which is advised by Pinewood Pictures, the project is set and shot entirely in Wales. It will film back to back in English and Welsh in the same way as the successful Y Gwyll/Hinterland.

Un Bore Mercher/Keeping Faith tells the story of lawyer, mother and wife Faith (Eve Myles) as she battles to discover the truth behind the udden disappearance of her husband. However, she soon learns that her hometown in West Wales is not as idyllic as it appears, harbouring secrets that threaten both the lives of Faith and her family.

The drama from Vox Pictures is co-written by Matthew Hall and adapted into Welsh by Anwen Huws. The director is Pip Broughton, who is co-producing with Nora Ostler for Vox Pictures. Executive Producers are Gwawr Martha Lloyd (S4C), Maggie Russell (BBC Wales), and Adrian Bate for Vox Pictures.

Filmed on location in the Vale of Glamorgan, Carmarthenshire, Laugharne and in Pencoed studios, the series is expected to premiere this autumn in Welsh as Un Bore Mercher on S4C, followed by the English language version, Keeping Faith, on BBC One Wales in early 2018.

Ken Skates, Economy Secretary, said: "This is another great project that is not only being filmed in Wales but also set in Wales with funding support from our Media Investment Budget. It will provide great opportunities for Welsh crews, facilities companies and local suppliers and provide a significant boost to local economies. The past five years have seen Wales become one of the most successful areas in the UK for high end television drama, and I am delighted that Un Bore Mercher/Keeping Faith has joined the growing showreel of made-in-Wales drama productions."
