Comedy horror from the BAFTA award-winning creator of Misfits, following an unlikely duo of demon hunters (Cara Theobold and Susan Wokoma). Filmed at The Bottle Yard Studios and across Bristol in summer 2016.

Bespoke sets were built in Tank House 2 and our Green Screen Studio, and props were stored on site. Filming for the six part series took place over 14 weeks at the Studios and at a number of Bristol locations, including the M-Shed, Millennium Promenade, Ashton Court Estate and Mansion House, O2 Academy, At Bristol, Avonmeads Retail Park and Imperial Park.

Producer Gareth Williams said: ‘With multiple studios, including a full green screen stage, prop storage and construction, The Bottle Yard Studios provides the best studio facilities in the West country. [Fiona Francombe’s] understanding of the film industry makes her team flexible and proactive, a valuable asset to any production. The studio areas are spacious and easily facilitated with an excellent choice of 3rd party companies on site and in the surrounding area that can supplement almost every department.

“Virtually any location that you can think of can be found within an hour of The Bottle Yard Studios and Bristol Film Office has great local knowledge and do everything they can to assist with finding locations and supporting filming.  All of this combined with Bristol’s and the West’s ample supply of good and highly experienced crew, contributed to the choice of using The Bottle Yard Studios an easy one.’
