BBC One’s new drama The Split features a female-led cast playing a family of divorce lawyers and was filmed partly in Kingston.
Starring Nicola Walker, Meera Syal, Fiona Button, Deborah Findlay and Annabel Scholey, it was written by Suffragette screen writer Abi Morgan.
It starts on 24 April at 9pm. Here’s the trailer.
The filming in Kingston was arranged through FilmFixer which manages the film office service for the borough.
FilmFixer director Karen Everett explains, “Being set around a family of lawyers, the script called for extensive courtroom scenes. This was an important location to find.
“Kingston’s old Surrey County Hall proved ideal – allowing the production to shoot over five days in total in September and November last year.
“It’s a great location with plenty of room for a big cast and crew, and in the relatively quiet locale that welcomes filming.”
