London: Bank Leumi’s Media & Entertainment unit has provided production finance for The Widow, a new high-end drama from Two Brothers Pictures. The series is commissioned by Amazon and ITV and stars Kate Beckinsale.
The 8x60 minute thriller follows recluse Georgia Wells (Beckinsale) as she investigates what happened to her late husband while he worked in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The series is being shot in Wales, South Africa and the Netherlands, with production beginning immediately.
“Two Brothers is responsible for some of the most acclaimed high-end-drama of recent times,” says Bank Leumi (UK) Relationship Manager, Stuart Woodward, “and we are delighted to welcome them as a customer via this exciting new production”.
Two Brothers is the production vehicle of screenwriting brothers Harry and Jack Williams with credits including White Dragon (ITV), Fleabag (BBC), Rellik (BBC) and Liar (ITV).
