4 years ago
Production is underway in the UK on The Irregulars.
Set in Victorian London, the series follows a gang of troubled delinquent teens who are manipulated into solving crimes for the sinister Doctor Watson and his mysterious business partner.
As the crimes take on a horrifying supernatural edge and a dark power emerges, it’ll be up to the Irregulars to come together to save London, each other, and potentially the entire world.
The series stars Thaddea Graham (Letter For The King, Us) as Bea; Darci Shaw (Judy, The Bay) as Jessie; Jojo Marcari (Sex Education, Hard Sun) as Billy; McKell David as Spike and Harrison Osterfield as Leopold; Henry Lloyd-Hughes as Sherlock and more.
Written and executive produced by Tom Bidwell (Watership Down, My Mad Fat Diary), The Irregulars is also executive produced by Jude Liknaitzky (My Mad Fat Diary, Doctor Foster) and Greg Brenman (Peaky Blinders, The Honourable Woman).
The series is produced by Rebecca Hodgson and lead director is Johnny Kenton.
Netflix and production company Drama Republic have partnered with the Liverpool Film Office and media, music and performing arts institute LMA to create five entrant opportunities for LMA alumni to work on the series across various departments. The goal is to offer trainees from the Liverpool city area the opportunity to work alongside seasoned industry professionals on The Irregulars.
The pilot scheme is part of the Liverpool Film Office’s five-year plan to develop an industry-led talent development pipeline to deliver an inclusive, highly-skilled workforce that will help secure Liverpool’s long-term positioning and advantage as a first-class creative and digital content production base working with industry and local training providers such as LMA.
Richard Wallace, who co-founded LMA with his brother, Simon, said: “Netflix and Drama Republic have provided this unique, life-changing opportunity to our graduates to help develop new talent and create the next generation of industry stars. We are committed to supporting our students after they leave us, playing a role in their career development wherever possible, so this initiative forms an important part of our culture at LMA.”
