Eva Myles Confirmed For BBC Wales / S4C Noir Thriller

An eight-part noir thriller co-produced by S4C and BBC Wales, starring Eve Myles (Torchwood), begins production this month and will be filmed back-to-back in Welsh and English. It will be known as Un Bore Mercher on S4C and Keeping Faith on BBC One Wales.

The series tells the story of lawyer, wife and mother Faith (Eva Myles) as she fights to find the truth behind the sudden disappearance of her husband. What she discovers is that her idyllic home town harbours many dark secrets that threaten the lives of Faith and her family.

Faith’s ordeal transforms her from a stay-at-home, fun-loving and carefree mother to detective, action hero and lover. She takes risks and gambles and finds a new inner strength.

Written by Matthew Hall (Kavanagh QC) and adapted into Welsh by Anwen Huws, the series will be filmed on location in the Vale of Glamorgan, Carmarthenshire and around Laugharne, with studio scenes recorded in Bridgend.

The cast includes Matthew Gravelle (Broadchurch), Mali Harries (Y Gwyll / Hinterland), Mark Lewis Jones (Stella) and Aneirin Hughes (Y Gwyll / Hinterland).

Un Bore Mercher / Keeping Faith is directed by Pip Broughton (Under Milk Wood) and will premiere in Welsh this autumn on S4C, followed by the English language version on BBC One Wales early next year.
