Rick Edwards cast in T4 comedy 'Rick and Peter'

21 July 2011 3:12 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ex-T4 presenter Rick Edwards has been cast in a Comedy Labs satire about the world of TV presenting. Rick and Peter will star Edwards and Peter Mitchell (Hollyoaks, Cast Offs) as exaggerated forms of themselves. The half-hour one-off is based around Edwards's character being given a crash course in political correctness after making a gaff on T4. Written by Tom Basden (The Party), the show has been greenlit by Channel 4 comedy commissioning editor Nerys Evans. Other Comedy Labs specials airing this year include Kabadasses, (more) »

Shooting today on BBC's 'The Fades'

20 April 2011 3:43 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Sometimes the geek world isn't even a tube ride away for me. I live within a stone's throw of a pretty cool-looking disused railway tunnel in London's Highgate, a location which, on average, receives a new film crew about every 4-5 months. Today they're filming the pilot of new BBC supernatural horror The Fades, written by Jack Thorne (This Is England '86, Skins, The Scouting Book For Boys, Cast Offs) and featuring Iain De Caestecker (River City, Coronation Street), Daniel Kaluuya (Skins, Psychoville, Sucker Punch), Claire Rushbrook (Ashes To Ashes), Johnny Harris (This is England '86, Spartacus), Lily Loveless (Skins), Theo Barklem-Biggs (Age Of Heroes, Miranda, EastEnders), Daniela Nardini (This Life, A Street Car Named Desire), Jenn Murray (Day Of The Triffids) and Sophie Wu (Kick-Ass, The Other Man).

I'm too busy to go and bother them much, and it's usually not appreciated anyway. The flyer we residents got say it'll be done by mid-evening, »

BBC Three has ordered a supernatural drama series called The Fades. The show stars Lip Service and Coronation Street actor Iain De Caestecker as Paul, a young man who has "apocalyptic" nightmares. Paul begins to see 'the Fades' - the spirits of the dead - and one finds a way to breach the barrier between the living and dead. Paul and his best friend Mac soon realise that they will be responsible for keeping the world safe. The six-part series has been penned by award-winning writer Jack Thorne, who has previously worked on dramas including This Is England '86, Skins and Cast Offs. "The Fades was born from a trip into executive producer Sue Hogg's office," he said. "She asked me what drama of the last ten years I wished I'd written. I said the American (more) »

16 February 2011 5:53 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Hollyoaks star Emmett Scanlan has confirmed that his character Brendan Brady has big reasons to be worried when newcomer Pete arrives in the village. Pete - played by former Cast Offs star Peter Mitchell - is the new headteacher of Hollyoaks High and takes up the position in next week's episodes after moving over from Ireland. However, the mysterious new arrival also has a history with Brendan and it seems that he has turned up in the village with a score to settle. Speaking in an interview with All About Soap, Scanlan explained that the situation is much worse than when Brendan's estranged wife Eileen and ex-lover Macca paid visits to Hollyoaks last year.

This Is England '88

25 January 2011 12:02 PM, PST | ScreenTerrier | See recent ScreenTerrier news »

Shane Meadows confirmed at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards that there will be a feature length follow-up to This Is England '86.

The two-hour drama will be set during Christmas 1988 and is to be broadcast on Channel 4 over the festive period at the end of this year. It will begin filming in the spring.

Meadows first introduced his group of young people growing up in the Midlands in the 1980s in the 2006 Film4-backed movie This Is England, which starred Thomas Turgoose, and then followed it up with the four-part Channel 4 drama This Is England '86 last year.

"I've never done a follow-up to something I've made as a film but there was something about This Is England, meeting Thomas Turgoose and the whole cast. We got as close as I have ever got to a family in this film," he said at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards today. »
