Filming has started in Manchester on a new Netflix series starring Marc Warren, Michael C Hall and Sherlock’s Amanda Abbington.
Produced by RED Production Company, Safe is created by bestselling writer Harlan Coben and written by BAFTA and Emmy Award winning writer Danny Brocklehurst (Ordinary Lies, The Driver, Shameless).
Hall (Dexter, Six Feet Under) will play Tom, a paediatric surgeon and single father of two teenage daughters who is struggling to deal with the loss of his wife from cancer more than two years previously.
Living and raising his children in a beautiful gated community surrounded by close friends, Tom finds himself on a journey that transforms everyone he knows. How far will you go to protect your family? It’s a question often asked, but Tom will now live it.
Abbington joins him as Sophie – a formidable detective sergeant who is separated from her husband Josh (Emmett J Scanlan) with Warren playing Tom’s best friend and sidekick, Pete.
The pair served in the army together, they work in the hospital together and he’s pretty much a second father to Tom’s daughters. As we follow Pete’s story we’ll start to realise he’s hiding a secret he can’t even share with Tom.
Safe is executive produced by Michael C Hall, Nicola Shindler, Harlan Coben, Danny Brocklehurst and RED’s Head of Development, Richard Fee.
The series is produced by RED Production Company (a STUDIOCANAL company), the multi-award-winning producers behind Happy Valley, Last Tango in Halifax and the iconic Queer as Folk.
