Exiled from Moscow to a grim provincial outpost, Leo and Raisa join forces with General Mikhail Nesterov (Gary Oldman) to track down a serial killer who preys on young boys.

Samantha Bond & Francesca Annis In WWII Drama Series ‘Home Fires’

Category : News, UK News
ITV has secured the main cast for their World War II drama series Home Fires (formerly known as Jambusters).Downton Abbey alum Samantha Bond and veteran actress Francesca Annis have been set at the two leads in the six episode series, which is being produced by ITV Studios. They topline a cast which also includes Ruth Gemmell (Utopia), Mark Bonnar (Line of Duty), Claire Rushbrook (Collision), Mark Bazeley (The Suspicions of Mr Whicher), Frances Grey (The Widower) and Ed Stoppard (Cilla).Based on the book Jambusters by Julie Summers, Home Fires is set in rural Cheshire during World War II and follows a group of “inspirational women”. The war has separated these women from their husbands, fathers, sons and brothers. By banding together, the women will help maintain the nation’s fabric in its darkest hour, and they will discover inner resources that will forever change their lives.

The series, which was originally commissioned back in July, was written by Lewis scribe Simon Block. The ITV Studios produced drama was developed by Catherine Oldfield, who serves as an executive producer alongside ITV Studios’ Francis Hopkinson. Strike Back‘s Sue de Beauvoir is set to produce, while Bruce Goodison (Our War) and Robert Quinn (Death In Paradise) are attached to direct. Production is now underway in Cheshire and will continue through December.

Jambusters‘ author Julie Summers is set to cameo on the series as a WI county organiser. “My grandmother, a life-long WI member, would undoubtedly approve of me wearing a hat”, she said. In addition, Rachel Hurd-Wood, Leila Mimmack, Claire Price, Daniel Ryan, Will Attenborough, Clare Calbraits, Chris Coghill, Brian Fletcher, Fenella Woolgar, Leanne Best, Mike Noble, Jacqueline Pilton, Mark Umbers, Jodie Hamblet, Adam Long, Paul Barnhill, Anthony Calf, Nicola Sloane, Jim Whelan and Daisy Badger are set to guest star.
