Safe House (2015)

Starring Christopher Eccleston, Paterson Joseph & Marsha Thomason, ITV's Safe House tells the story of a married couple, former detective Robert and teacher Katy, who are asked by close friend and police officer Mark, to turn their remote Guest House into a Safe House.

The first series averaged 6.5 million viewers. A second series is due to start filming in February 2016 and will deliver a brand new four-part story involving the married couple as they continue to offer sanctuary to those in need of protection.

Safe House is produced by independent production Eleventh Hour Films and has been recommissioned by broadcaster ITV. Set in the beautiful picturesque wilderness of the Lake District the second series will be written by Ed Whitmore (Arthur & George, Silent Witness, Waking the Dead) and Tracey Malone (Silent Witness), with Marc Evans (Hinterland, Collision) returning to direct.

Andrew Benson, Safe House Producer said: "Our main location is the principle house that our principle characters live in, but we have been up to Keswick, we've been up onto Honister Pass, we've been on Buttermere, we've been on Windermere, we've been on most of the lakes in fact at some point and it ties into the story because the characters live in this beautiful area and the whole thriller story is connected with the Lake District."
