Boarders (BBC Three)

Comedy drama created by Bafta-nominated Daniel Lawrence Taylor (Timewasters) following the lives of five talented black inner-city teenagers navigating their way through an alien world – the British public school system.

Production was based at The Bottle Yard where sets for key interiors were built. Bristol Film Office worked closely with the production team to source offices and parking for crew near the main filming site in Clifton for the duration of the five-month shoot. It also connected producers with Bristol company Latent Pictures which runs a paid development programme for underrepresented filmmakers.
