"We have some stunning locations and I can’t wait to showcase them in our drama."
Gabriel Silver, producer
The dust had barely settled from T2 Trainspotting’s mammoth shoot before BBC Three’s Clique began production – a shoot that would contribute to 70 days filming across the Edinburgh city-region.
The six-part psychological thriller from Skins writer Jess Brittain follows two friends in their first year of university in Edinburgh where they soon find themselves drawn to an elite clique.
The production based themselves at offices in Leith while they also spent a substantial period of time set building at the old Royal Blind School which would be used for university halls and an office among other places.
On filming in Edinburgh Clique producer Gabriel Silver, said:
“Its been truly inspiring scouting a city as handsome and diverse as Edinburgh - our director Robbie McKillop studied and lived here for many years and has a great instinct for capturing an utterly contemporary Edinburgh for our bracingly contemporary story. We have some stunning locations and I can’t wait to showcase them in our drama.”
Clique was one of several major productions to shoot in the Edinburgh city-region during 2016 contributing to a record-breaking year for economical impact from filming.
Clique starts on BBC Three Sunday March 5 2017.
