'Gone' starts filming in London

Sky has today announced the commission of two Sky Original Productions, further reinforcing Sky Atlantic's offering of new big screen drama every month.

From World Productions, the company behind award-winning Line of Duty, Gone is created and written by Lennie James (Critical, The Walking Dead) and directed by BAFTA winner Nick Murphy (Occupation, The Last Kingdom). James, who wrote award-winning drama Storm Damage, also stars in the series with BAFTA winner Suranne Jones (Doctor Foster, Scott & Bailey) and Stephen Graham (This is England, Boardwalk Empire).

Gone brings a unique and unlikely hero to Sky Atlantic in the form of Nelson Nelly Rowe (James) a man who likes a drink, whose days are bookended by his first can and his last pint. Nelly lives with whichever woman he happens to be sleeping with at the time often more than one and sometimes more than two. And he is the life and soul of the pub a charmer, a chancer, a fighter, a liar and, at his age, a man who should know better. 

When Nelly is accused of a terrible crime, he sets off to clear his name and find the real perpetrator. It is a journey that will slam him hard up against the debris of his careless past but also offer him the chance to make amends for his mistakes, not least to Claire (Jones) with who he shared a summer of love 13 years ago.  

Set on a south east London housing estate, Gone is the story of a man facing the stark and painful reality that the very worst thing happening to someone he loves could be the best thing that has ever happened to him.
