July 21 (UPI) -- Filming has begun in Manchester on the small-screen drama, Safe.
Starring actor and Hodgkin's lymphoma survivor Michael C. Hall and Amanda Abbington, the eight-part series is to air on C8 in France and Netflix globally outside of France in 2018. The ensemble also includes Audrey Fleurot, Emmett J. Scanlan and Marc Warren.
The story centers on Hall's character Tom, a pediatric surgeon and single father of two teenage daughters who is struggling to deal with the loss of his wife from cancer more than two years before."
"To get to tell stories like this one, and to be surrounded by such talented people, it almost feels like I've gate-crashed a party... luck of the Irish it would seem," Scanlan said in a statement.
"A Harlan Coben storyline and getting to work with Michael C. Hall makes me very happy to be working with RED Production Company on Safe," added Warren.
