Yorkshire is set to be the backdrop for a new Netflix drama Bodies, with filming set to take place in Hull’s Old Town along with a range of spots across Yorkshire including Leeds, Bradford, Grimsby and Rotherham, according to a casting call.
The new thrill, which is an adaptation of Si Spencer’s graphic novel of the same name will follow four detectives from four different eras, all investigating the same murder in London.
Hull’s Old Town will act as the London backdrop for the eight-part series with filming expected to take place this month according to a new city council report.
The Old Town has proven quite popular as a filming location with crews from Millie Bobby Brown of Stranger Things, filming Enola Holmes 2 and also Amando Iannucci’s The Personal History of David Copperfield.
“Its beautifully preserved period streets and historic architecture are a big pull for the producers and directors we work with.
“This has landed major film and TV projects from Netflix, BBC, ITV and Film 4 in the city. Hull is the perfect on-screen double for period London – when we combine this with Yorkshire’s talented crew, regional content funding, a growing studio infrastructure and film-friendly credentials we have the perfect package to attract high-calibre productions to the region.”
