Channel 5 has picked up Nent Studios UK’s adaptation of T.M. Logan’s The Holiday.
The 4 x 60-minute thriller has three other co-production partners – Trevor Eve’s Projector Pictures, Chalkboard sister label Clapperboard Studios and German indie Night Train Media. Filming starts early next year.
The Holiday with T.M. Logan
The series follows four best friends who travel to a luxurious villa in the south of France, but on their day of arrival, one of them discovers their husband Is having an affair.
She points the finger at her three friends in turn and the dream holiday becomes a nightmare.
Nent revealed it was adapting the series with Projector last June, with the other two indies coming on board more recently.
Waking the Dead star Eve is exec producing, alongside Nent’s Dave Clarke, Rachel Gesua, Clapperboard’s Mike Benson and Night Train’s Herbert Kloiber and Olivia Pahl.
ViacomCBS deputy director of programmes Sebastian Cardwell, who ordered the drama, said the adaptation will make “thrilling television”.
The Holiday is the fourth drama Clapperboard has picked up from C5 since it was launched just two months ago, along with Deadline, Teacher and Intruder. Deadline is also being produced in association with Night Train.
