Cameras Roll on New C4 Thriller Born to Kill


LONDON: Channel 4’s new psychological thriller Born to Kill, which comes from Line of Duty producers World Productions, has started filming in Cardiff, Wales.

The four-parter stars Romola Garai (The Hour, Suffragette) and Daniel Mays (Made in Dagenham, Line of Duty, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) as the single parents of two out-of-control teens. Born to Kill marks the first commission for the female writing duo Tracey Malone (Rillington Place) and Kate Ashfield. The series will make its U.K. debut in 2017.

Simon Maxwell, the head of international drama at Channel 4, said: “Born to Kill expertly combines the psychological thriller and coming-of-age drama to take us into the terrifying world of its young protagonist and offer us a unique insight into the genesis of one young man’s psychopathy.

Jake Lushington, executive producer for World Productions, said: “Channel 4 is always prepared to test the limits of drama and dig deeper into the psychology of the characters that inhabit them. World Productions is thrilled they have commissioned Born to Kill, a chilling, heart-breaking story that isn’t afraid to put the audience inside the mind of a disturbed and terrifying teenager.”
