Every Tuesday, TMINE flags up what new TV events BAFTA is holding around the UK
Only one addition to the March schedule this week, but it’s a Q&A. And in Glasgow! Sure, it’s an ITV show again, so surprise, surprise, is a crime drama. Remember the days when ITV made something other than period dramas, crime dramas and period crime dramas? I’m not sure I do any more.
TV Preview: The Bay + Q&A
Thursday, 14 March 2019 – 6:30pm
Everyman Cinema, Princes Square, Glasgow
New ITV original drama The Bay from award winning writer and playwright Daragh Carville (Being Human, The Smoke, Cherrybomb) and starring Morven Christie (The A Word, The Replacement).
When Detective Sergeant Lisa Armstrong is assigned to a missing persons investigation, at first it seems like any other – tragic, but all too familiar. As a Family Liaison Officer, she’s trained never to get emotionally involved. Her job is to support families during the worst time of their lives whilst also to be the eyes and ears of the police investigation; a cuckoo in the nest. But there’s something very different about this particular case. With horror Lisa realises she’s got a personal connection with this frightened family; one that could compromise her and the investigation. As she grapples to get justice for the grieving family, Lisa discovers it could come at a cost.
This screening will be followed by a Q&A with actor Morven Christie and Script Executive Sophie Bicknell. Networking drinks in partnership with STV take place in the Everyman bar afterwards.
