Un Bore Mercher (Keeping Faith)
BAFTA events

What TV’s on at BAFTA in June and July? Including Dark Mon£y and Keeping Faith

Every Tuesday, TMINE flags up what new TV events BAFTA is holding around the UK

After a bit of a breather, TMINE’s regular round-up of BAFTA TV things is back again with a couple of events, one at the end of June, another in July.

I’m not sure why they’re doing a ‘premiere’ of series 2 of Keeping Faith, given S4C has just finished airing the Welsh language version Un Bore Mercher, but it’s there if you want it.

Dark Money

TV Preview: Dark Mon£y

Tuesday, 25 June
6:45pm 
Princess Anne Theatre, 195 Piccadilly, London, W1J 9LN

A preview of the first episode of new BBC One drama followed by a Q+A with writer Levi David Addai, actors Jill Halfpenny and Babou Ceesay, and director Lewis Arnold.

Written by BAFTA-nominated writer Levi David Addai (Damilola, Our Loved Boy); starring BAFTA-nominated Babou Ceesay (Damilola, Our Loved Boy) and Jill Halfpenny (Three Girls); and directed by Lewis Arnold (Broadchurch), Dark Mon£y tells the fictional story of The Mensahs, an ordinary working-class family from North London whose youngest son has recently finished filming a major Hollywood movie role.

But Manny (Ceesay) and Sam’s (Halfpenny) world is shattered when Isaac reveals he was abused whilst out in America by a renowned filmmaker. Although guilt-ridden, the family decide to accept a substantial pay-off to keep silent, believing the money will help start a new life, enable them to heal and avoid the publicity hell of pressing charges against a celebrity. They are wrong. Damage runs deep, and the price of taking the money may be too high.

Also joining the cast are Rebecca Front (War and Peace), Susan Wokoma (Chewing Gum), Olive Gray (Home from Home), Ellen Thomas (Teachers), Arnold Oceng (The Good Lie), Joseph May (Resident Evil), Rudi Dharmalingam (Our Girl) and Gary Beadle (EastEnders).

Produced by The Forge Entertainment, Dark Mon£y is a 4×60’ drama series. Executive Producers are George Faber and Mark Pybus for The Forge, Lucy Richer for BBC One and Levi David Addai. Producer is Erika Hossington.

Good Omens follows the duo who have lost the Antichrist, an 11-year-old boy unaware he’s meant to bring upon the end of days, forcing them to embark on an adventure to find him and save the world before it’s too late… 

The Amazon Original, based on the beloved book by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman, is directed by Douglas Mackinnon (Sherlock – The Abominable Bride) and also stars Jon Hamm, Nick Offerman, Jack Whitehall, Miranda Richardson, Adria Arjona, Michael McKean, Mireille Enos, among many others.
