The Collection: screening for new series coming soon

Oliver Goldstick tweeted about a screening for The Collection. I assume that it must just be a cast and / or press screening, but exciting news that the series is coming soon!


Another report from the Serie Series event has been shared here. Thanks to Tanya (@td_ghostorchid) for translating. The only error in the original report is that Amazon UK is producing the show, not Amazon US. 

The Collection: September broadcast on Amazon UK

IMDb has September 1st 2016 listed as the broadcast date for The Collection on Amazon UK. This date hasn't been announced anywhere else online that I can see, although it was revealed at the recent Serie Series event in France last week, that The Collection would be launched in September. It seems broadcast in France will be dependent upon the completion of dubbing in French, and reporters who saw the footage at Serie Series found the show to be exciting.

The Collection: Dominik Scherrer to compose series score

Film Music Reporter has shared the news that Domink Scherrer will create the score for The Collection. Long time fans of Tom may recognise Dominik's name from his work on Monroe and Marple: Ordeal by Innocence. In fact, the soundtrack to Monroe is available on iTunes, should you wish to listen.

Dominik Scherrer has been tapped to score the Amazon original series The Collection. The show is created Oliver Goldstick (Pretty Little Liars) and stars Richard Coyle, Tom Riley, Frances de la Tour, Mamie Gummer, Max Deacon, Irène Jacob, Michael Kitchen and James Cosmo. The drama is set after World War II and centers around an illustrious Paris fashion house, emerging from the dark days of the Occupation, now ushering in a new golden age of design and business. Goldstick is also executive producing the Lookout Point and Artis Pictures production with Anne Thomopoulos (Rome, Camelot), Kate Croft, Pascal Breton, Simon Vaughan (War And Peace, Parade’s End), Médéric Albouy and Toma de Matteis. The project marks Amazon’s first UK original series.

Dark Heart: a bleak, painful & uncompromising script by Chris Lang

To accompany the announcement that Franc Ashman has joined the cast of Dark Heart, currently filming in London, Sainou Agency provided a brief descriotion for the 2 hour ITV Encore drama (formerly known as Wagstaffe), which adds a little more flavour for fans.

Franc Ashman shoots the role of Lisa Regis in Wagstaffe, a new crime drama pilot for ITV.

A bleak, painful & uncompromising script by Chris Lang (Unforgotten, A Mother’s Son, Torn etc), WAGSTAFFE is a character driven piece rather than a procedural, and focusses on the life and work of D.I. WILL ‘STAFFE’ WAGSTAFFE.

The piece is set in the City/Square Mile area of London. Although cinematic in style & feel, this is not a ‘glossy’ London…it’s a city where many feel unsafe, and one man’s crime is another man’s justice.

Sadly we have no photos of Tom in character or on set, to share to promote the show, but Tom kindly posted this photo from filming this week on Instagram.
