A new project on horizon for 'Baby Reindeer' creator

The creator of the Netflix hit drama show Baby Reindeer, Richard Gadd, has recently revealed that he has a new project on the horizon, which is promising to provide as much shock and intrigue as his first programme. 

Lions has been written and created by Gadd and will be filmed in Glasgow, where it is also set. Alexandra Brodski of Nowhere Boy is currently attached to the six-part project in the director’s role.

The show will tell of a man’s estranged brother turning up at his wedding which leads into a string of violence. Taking place from the 1980s to the present day, Lions will focus on the difficult relationship between the two brothers.

In a statement given to the BBC, Gadd noted, “When I first started talking about this project with the wonderful Tally Garner and Morven Reid, it was love at first sight. For them, anyway. I kept it purely professional. I am absolutely thrilled to be working with them in bringing Ruben and Niall to the screen alongside Lindsay Salt, Gaynor Holmes, and the incredible BBC team.” 

He added, “It is a dream come true to be part of such a historic broadcaster with a reputation for bringing the best comedy and drama (and comedy-drama for that matter) to our screens. A dream which will likely wear off when it comes to tight writing deadlines and rainy shooting days on the streets of Glasgow. Just joking.”

Executive producer Tally Garner also said that they are “unbelievably excited” to be working with Gadd, who “has that rare gift of creating characters who challenge your senses while stealing your heart” and can deliver “something very special.”

The director of BBC Drama said of the show, “Richard Gadd’s hugely imaginative, one-of-a-kind exploration of Niall, Ruben, and their intertwining lives is bold and brilliant storytelling that will make you sit up and lean in.”

In other Richard Gadd news, the creator of Baby Reindeerrecently told his audience members not to try and track down the people who caused the real life events his hit Netflix show was based on. “Please don’t speculate on who any of the real-life people could be.” he wrote online. “That’s not the point of our show.”
