Production of 4th series of Cold Feet begins

By
Filming begins this month on Cold Feet, the award-winning Granada comedy drama starring Helen Baxendale, James Nesbitt, John Thomson, Fay Ripley, Robert Bathurst and Hermoine Norris.

Britain’s favourite thirtysomething friends are reunited once more for the eagerly awaited fourth series of this hugely popular show, which follows the trials and tribulations of six very different characters as they stumble through the minefields of marriage, sex, friendship and parenthood, with both hilarious and poignant results.

Winner of twelve international awards, including the Golden Rose of Montreux, and one of the most talked-about series on television, Cold Feet has been an outstanding success in the UK and around the world where it is shown in 23 countries.

Filming in Manchester and Australia, the new series opens with newly-weds Adam (James Nesbitt) and Rachel (Helen Baxendale) coming to terms with married life and the sad realisation that they can’t have children.

Pete (John Thomson) and Jenny (Fay Ripley) are back together - at least for now, and David (Robert Bathurst) and Karen (Hermione Norris) are struggling to patch up their marriage after David’s disastrous affair. And a stranger is about to enter the life of one of the friends, changing things forever…

Andy Harries, Controller of Drama and Comedy for Granada, says: ‘I'm delighted that the show is back as a result of popular demand. The cast can't wait to get stuck in again and there are some really exciting additions to the team. The great thing about COLD FEET is that each character's life is so complex, such a rich tapestry of humorous, heart-breaking and challenging situations, that it's really interesting to see how the creators weave their magic to keep viewers enthralled. There are a lot of unexpected surprises in store for fans and some great new characters to attract those who still haven't discovered the show.’

All eight episodes are written by Mike Bullen, who has written all of the series to date, with Mark Chappell co-writing on episode 3. Episodes 1-3 and 7-8 are produced by Spencer Campbell and episodes 4-6 by Emma Benson. Episodes 1-3 will be directed by Tim Whitby with further directors still to be confirmed.
