How the North has helped Television and Film

The North is no stranger to welcoming television and film productions. In the past few years we have seen the North take over and shine through, familiar locations are even making an appearance in Hollywood films.

Recently Manchester’s Northern Quarter has been transformed into New York City for a Spider-Man spin-off, as well as featuring in segments of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows which also used the stunning Yorkshire location, Malham Cove.

Bollywood has also taken centre stage in Yorkshire for films such as Gold and Shaandaar, spending over £70 million on UK Production since 2015.

Global phenomenons include Peaky Blinders, Victoria, Tolkien, Peterloo and Downton Abbey which wouldn’t be what they were if it wasn’t for our gorgeous landscapes, historical buildings and hidden gems that make the perfect settings adding to the plots and storylines.

We are already very lucky to have Media City, and now excitingly Channel 4 is also set to make their way North, choosing the City of Leeds as their new home.

Boss Casting are proud to be Northern and even prouder to be a part of the exciting productions that continue to take place on our doorstep. We look forward to seeing what the future holds
