Greenlit means a project is officially a go, so all you have to do is follow these leads to stay up to date. You never know where you’ll find an opportunity to land an audition!

“The Good Karma Hospital”
Popular Sunday night drama “The Good Karma Hospital” had a third series confirmed last week after an emotional end to Series 2. Amrita Acharia, James Krishna Floyd, Amanda Redman, and Neil Morrissey star in the series, which begins shooting its third season in August on location in Sri Lanka. Casting director Andy Morgan is attached.

Sky Atlantic’s English language remake of the critically acclaimed Norwegian drama “Valkyrien” begins shooting this September. The eight-episode drama stars Mark Strong as a surgeon whose attempts to save his wife become increasingly desperate. “Temple” shoots on location in London beginning Sept. 3 and casting director Jina Jay is attached.

“Inside No. 9”
The dark comedy anthology series returns for a Halloween special. Den of Geek reports that Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith are hard at work writing the brand new episode, with details kept under wraps. Although each episode has been full of twists and turns, it’ll be no surprise if long time casting director Tracey Gillham returns for the halloween special. Shooting begins in October.

“The Durrells”
A fourth series of the true-life drama about a family relocating to a Greek island just before the Second World War returns. Adapted from Gerald Durrell’s memoirs, stars Keeley Hawes and Josh O’Connor return but the team at Crowley Poole Casting are on hand to bring in new faces. Filming begins in August partly on location on Corfu.
