July 4 (UPI) -- Filming has begun in Britain on the ITV drama Girlfriends, starring Phyllis Logan, Miranda Richardson and Zoë Wanamaker.
The ensemble also includes Daisy Head, Chris Fountain, Philip Cumbus, Matthew Lewis, Val Lilley, Anthony Head, Adrian Rawlins, Wendy Craig, Dave Hill, Steve Evets, Paula Wilcox, Chloe Hart, Elena Saurel, Thailia Zucchi, Emmett J. Scanlon, Rochenda Sandall and Matthew Marsh.
"I'm thrilled to be part of Girlfriends, written by the wonderful Kay Mellor and to be working not only with her but the stellar cast that has been assembled. It's a hugely exciting project and I feel enormously fortunate to be involved in it. I can't wait to get started," Logan said in a statement.
"A whole summer spent working on a women-driven script, written and directed by a woman who has proved herself many times over as a force of nature in TV drama alongside some of our most gifted female actors -- what's not to like?" Richardson added.
"I'm looking forward to working on this exciting new series with such a stellar cast. I have long been a fan of Kay's work and am relishing the opportunity to work alongside Miranda and Phyllis," Wanamaker remarked.
