Brendan Coyle to Lead New Drama SpotlessMarc Ehrenbold
French pay-TV group Canal Plus has given a 10-episode order to the London-set crime drama Spotless, with StudioCanal’s Tandem Communications to produce in association with Rosetta Media.
Spotless is described as a “sexy one-hour crime drama peppered with black humor.” It follows the story of a troubled man whose tidy life is turned upside down when his outlaw brother crash lands into his world, and gets both of them involved in the deadly dynamics of organized crime as their dysfunctional family struggles to gain control over life, business and shared destiny.
Brendan is swapping the hallowed halls of the Crawley’s palatial manor house for London and the grubby world of organised crime. Coyle will be joined by Silk actress Miranda Raison, Marc-Andre Grondin and Denis Menochet. Principal photography has started this summer in London.
Co-created by Shameless UK producer and writer Ed McCardie and Corinne Marrinan (CSI, Crossing Lines), the series is produced by Studiocanal’s Tandem Communications in association with Rosetta Media for Canal+ Original Programming.
Executive producers include Suzanne Berger (Hell on Wheels) and Tandem’sRola Bauer. Lead producer will be Hugh Warren, whose credits recent U.K. hit Call the Midwife. Producing for Tandem is Moritz Polter.
McCardie is head writer and Marrinan is writer and co-executive producer. Executive producers include Tandem’s Rola Bauer, Jonas Bauer and Suzanne Berger, who first brought the project to Tandem. Producing for Tandem is Moritz Polter.
Fabrice de la Patellière, Director of French Drama and Co-Productions for CANAL+ says, “We are delighted to begin production of Spotless, featuring talented lead actors Marc-André Grondin and Denis Ménochet, who are great matches for the show’s originality and dark humor. We love Pascal Chaumeil’s work and are excited that he will be directing the first two episodes, starting the series off in a quirky, off-beat style. The channel is taking a thrilling gamble by introducing a new genre to its original programming.”
