Bedlam announce first TV drama series

Bedlam have joined forces with New Zealand-based South Pacific Pictures to develop their first television drama series, Spitfire Girls.

The drama will focus on the lives of the women of the Air Transport Auxiliary, a brave band of sisters who, during WWII, flew new aircraft from factories to airfields, or took badly damaged planes back the other way. They often risked their lives and lost many loved ones, but their bravery and camaraderie overcame prejudice to forge a new breed of woman.

The series will be produced by Bedlam's Gareth Unwin alongside Liz Trubridge, best known for the hugely successful series Downton Abbey, and John Barnett of South Pacific Pictures. More details will follow.


Bedlam announce new project Zaytoun

Bedlam Productions have announced their next production at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.

Zaytoun is the story of the unlikely alliance between a 10-year old Palestinian refugee and an Israeli fighter pilot shot down over Beirut in 1982. Their initial distrust develops into friendship as they make their way across war-torn Lebanon to a place they both call home.

Gareth Unwin will co-produce the film with Fred Ritzenberg of Far Films from a script by first time Palestinian writer Nader Rizq, with Israeli director Eran Riklis (Lemon Tree and The Syrian Bride) signed on to helm the film.

The $8-10 million project is expected to shoot in Israel in the autumn and is currently in the process of securing cast and production finance.


Royal Nuptials

The forthcoming royal nuptials will have half the world glued to their television screens in a month's time, but more importantly Bedlam's new documentary The King's Speech Revealed will be showing on Five on 3rd May at 8pm. The film goes behind the scenes of The King's Speech with Mark Logue as he sets out to discover the truth about his grandfather Lionel, memorably portrayed in the film by Geoffrey Rush.

Rush also contributes to the documentary, along with Oscar-winning writer David Seidler, as they describe how they brought Lionel and his relationship with King George VI to life. As Mark travels from Australia to the UK, meeting family members and former patients, Lionel becomes an increasingly vivid figure with a remarkable and unique life story.

Tune in at 8pm on 4th May for a very royal week and some great TV.
