Both companies revealed the first trailer for their new co-production, Close to Me, exclusively to ttvnews.
In August of last year, Mexican production company Dopamine and NENT Studios UK announced their first international co-production: British thriller Close to Me.
Months later, they revealed the cast and the beginning of production for the show, which will air this year on Channel 4 in the UK and Viaplay in the Nordic countries, and will be distributed internationally by NENT itself.
Close to Me stars Connie Nielsen and Christopher Eccleston.
It also features performances by Tom Taylor (Us, Doctor Foster), Rosy McEwen (The Letter Writer, The Angel of Darkness), Susan Lynch (Save Me, Unforgotten), Leanne Best (Young Wallander, Cold Feet), Henning Jensen ( When the Dust Settles, Below the Surface), Ellie Haddington (Enola Holmes, Motherland), Ray Fearon (Da Vinci’s Demons, His Dark Materials), Nick Blood (Agents of SHIELD, Strike), Jamie Flatters (Liar, Avatar 2) and Lorraine Burroughs (Hard Sun, Last Tango in Halifax).
Based on the best-selling novel of the same name written by British author Amanda Reynolds, the adaptation was led by screenwriter Angela Pell (Snow Cake, Gifted). Michael Samuels (The Windermere Children, The Missing, Any Human Heart) is the director and Gina Carter (Yardie, In the Long Run, Kingdom) is the executive producer along with Robert Taylor and Ed Clarke of TDP, Dave Clarke of NENT Studios in the UK, as well as Connie Nielsen.
Close to Me is the story of Jo Harding (Connie Nielsen), a woman who apparently has it all: a beautiful country house, a loving family, and a faithful husband (Christopher Eccleston). But after a fall, Jo’s last year fades from her memory. In trying to make sense of the forgotten events, Jo will discover that her life is not as perfect as she had imagined… and that someone will do everything in their power to prevent her from discovering a terrible secret.
