Company News August 18, 2016

Star of stage and screen Helen McCrory (The Deep Blue Sea, Harry Potter, Peaks Blinders) will play the lead in Mammoth Screen’s new six-part contemporary thriller for ITV, Fearless.

McCrory plays Emma Blunt, a solicitor known for defending lost causes. As Emma digs deeper into her latest case, she begins to sense powerful forces, in the police and the intelligence services at home and abroad, who want to stop her uncovering the truth in her thrilling journey for justice.

 Fearless is written by Homeland writer and executive producer Patrick Harbinson. “Fearless is a legal thriller,” said Harbinson, “but one that’s written in the crash zone where law and politics collide.”

The drama will be produced by Adrian Sturges (Houdini and Doyle, The Enfield Haunting, The Disappearance of Alice Creed) and executive produced by Mammoth Screen’s Managing Director, Damien Timmer, Tom Mullens (Endeavour, Black Work) and Patrick Harbinson. Developed by Mammoth Screen’s Creative Director Rebecca Keane, the series will be directed by BAFTA winner Pete Travis (The Go-Between, Legacy, Omagh). It will be distributed internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.

Filming will begin in London and East Anglia in September 2016.
