This week, Talking TV heads to the 17th century to explore America’s first mail-order brides in Sky 1 drama Jamestown.
Produced by Downton Abbey indie Carnival Films, the eight-part drama stars Naomi Battrick, Sophie Rundle and Niamh Walsh as three English women shipped to a US colony to become wives.
We speak to Carnival managing director and executive producer of the period drama Gareth Neame about the show, filming in Hungary and the production challenges associated with the booming scripted sector.
Elsewhere, we are joined in the studio by the team behind Channel 4 comedy drama Loaded.
Howard Burch, creative director for scripted at Keshet UK and Polly Leys, joint managing director of Hillbilly Films and Television talk about the Jon Brown-penned series, which follows four life-long friends who become multi-millionaires overnight.
