Hollyoaks creatives join the Surrey Hills team
Excellent news! The Surrey Hills teaser is now complete, and will be coming to us in just four weeks time via social media channels.
Filming began on the 20th of January and took place over 3 days at a number of glamorous Surrey locations. The cast included many of the faces previously associated with the Surrey Hills series including Benny Rose, Holly Jennings & Alan Watts as well as a number of new faces that are already proving popular.
And with Hollyoaks old-hands Jo Hallows and David Richardson joining the team as producer and director respectively, the show looks set to be a real sparkler.
“We are thrilled to have Jo and David on board" says Oliver Thomas, one of the show's creatives. "Their achievements to date have been truly amazing and we are excited to move the Surrey Hills series forward under their direction.”
As Producer of Hollyoaks, Jo Hallows successfully took the soap from 1 to 5 nights per week with numerous late night spin-off series and feature films. David has been nominated for many international and national awards including an Emmy, a BAFTA and six nominations at The Soap Awards, of which he won ‘Spectacular Scene’ and ‘Best Episode’.
“Surrey Hills will be visually stunning, sleek and stylish in its execution" says Hallows. "It will make you laugh and make you cry. The audience will warm to the characters, admire their courage and cringe when they realise the lengths they will go to to realise their dreams.
"Despite coming from the wealthiest households and the best schools, none of our cast expect handouts. They all have their own dreams and goals and they will walk over anyone that attempts to stand in their way.”
Oooh. Sounds like a lot of cat-fights and tiaras. Bring it on!
