Filming is underway on the seventh series of popular long-running Sky1 comedy Trollied at The Bottle Yard Studios in Bristol
 
The much-loved supermarket sitcom, produced by Roughcut TV, has been entertaining audiences since it began in 2011. Filmed on the full-scale ‘Valco’ supermarket set at The Bottle Yard, a total of six series and four Christmas specials have been made at the Studios to date. Series six premiered last year on Sky 1 in November, followed by a Christmas special in December 2016. 

The show’s latest cast featured popular UK talent including Jason Watkins, Stephen Tompkinson and Sarah Parish, alongside other regulars Rita May, Channel Cresswell, Carl Rice, Beverly Rudd, Lorraine Cheshire, Faye Mckeever, Jack Carroll, Nikhil Parmar and Dominic Coleman.
 
Trollied series 7 will shoot eight half hour and one hour-long episode over nine weeks. The show’s production team is well known for working with Sky to implement sustainable measures during production, sharing The Bottle Yard’s commitment to making TV production 'greener'.
 
Tim Sealey, Head of Production at Roughcut TV, said: “It’s great to be back at The Bottle Yard for our seventh series of Trollied. We have always felt very well looked after here, Fiona and the team make sure the production runs as smoothly as possible so that there is no drama, just pure comedy. Sustainability is important to us and The Bottle Yard is a great partner to have to ensure that we retain our Albert 3-star status.” 
 
Fiona Francombe, The Bottle Yard Studios’ Site Director says: “We’re delighted to welcome the Trollied team back for the seventh year running. It’s always refreshing to work with Roughcut TV and Sky to lessen the environmental footprint of production. Roughcut generates award-winning comedy for UK audiences and our long-standing relationship with them has been hugely valuable. Trollied was one of the first shows to shoot here and their return each year has been a cornerstone for the Studio’s development.”
 
Other productions recently filmed at The Bottle Yard Studios include: The Crystal Maze (airing now on Channel 4), Poldark (third series airing now on BBC One), Broadchurch (ITV), The White Princess (STARZ) and Crazyhead (E4/Netflix).
