Edit 19/5 – episodes are released every Tuesday and Friday at 5pm.
For once, I’m actually early with a post. That’s because my inner 8-year-old has gotten a bit excited about something.
Today, at 5pm (GMT), you can watch the 1st episode of a brand new web-based show called “Containment“. We think it’s (probably) the very first drama series to be filmed during lockdown. I know there have been loads of quiz shows and chat shows, but so far, I haven’t seen any actual dramas.
All the actors filmed themselves at home, and what a brilliant bunch they all are. It’s been so important to stay busy, to stay active, but above all – stay safe. So if you want to brighten your day with this unique story, grab yourself a cuppa (each episode will be 10 minutes or less) and click on the link.
It was created by Anna Oliver. I co-wrote. It’s directed by the amazing Adam Spinks, with Natalie Cox doing some superb editing. It stars a variety of awesome people including Abigail King (Like Glass, Imagineer), Toby Oliver (The Split), Anna Marie Everett (The Durrells) and there are more and more actors joining up every day. I’m even in there – see if you can spot me!
I don’t want to give anything away, so I’m going to play safe here by quoting the director…
“The show has been created entirely from everybody’s homes and follows a rich mix of diverse, crazy and colourful characters as they adjust to life inside of a fictional lockdown situation! We’ll see their daily lives, their video diaries and so much more as their stories unfold!”
So, you now have the link to the first episode of this unique soap!
