Re: Filming in Daisy Lane and possibly Next Lane Over too for a new BBC comedy series.
I am writing to let you know about some filming we would like to do on 21 June for a new BBC comedy series.
From 0800-1100 we will be outside a bungalow in Daisy Lane
(I know which one!!!)
From 1100-1200 we will be driving a car carefully up and down Daisy Lane (ooooh!!)
From 1200-1300 we will be on either Next Street, Daisy Lane or Next Lane over for a short scene when a woman spots a neighbour walking a dog.***
The series, which is currently untitled (working title ‘Live Girls’) is set in a fictitious coastal town in the North East of England* and focuses on the daily life of a teacher and his wife, a library crew**, a fortune teller and her son, and an optician. The bungalow in Daisy Lane will represent the home of a member of the library crew.
Blah, blah, blah.
I am so going to be blogging this! Plan to dig out the old SLR and telephoto lens, position myself in a comfy spot in the upstairs window and will be reporting! live! from the scene!
* Eh? I suppose a bungalow’s a bungalow but I can’t see flat, hill-less south east Engand being a good substitute for a hilly coastal town in the North East.
** Since when did library staff get called a crew?
*** Yes, we’ll be groomed and ready just in case they need a stand-in… I bet my dog‘s better looking than their dog anyway.
