What do we know about Glass Houses?

The series written by Mark Brotherhood has been commissioned by ITV's Comedy Controller Saskia Schuster:

"Glass Houses is a new drama in the tradition of Doc Martin and The Darling Buds Of May, full of warmth and intriguing characters.

"This new series will embrace its beautiful idyllic South Devon setting as we meet the villagers of Thurlbury and find out how an innocent afternoon spent indiscreetly gossiping has a domino effect on the whole village".

Sophie Clarke-Jervoise, Genial Productions' Managing Director and Executive Producer. said they are "delighted" to be making it:

"It's a cautionary tale for anyone wanting to gain popularity by passing on unfounded gossip and Mark Brotherhood’s scripts are packed full of intrigue, comedy and suspense".

"Sophie and I have been developing Glass Houses for some time and I can't wait to finally get started in front of the camera.

"It's such a good story with a fantastic funny, touching script by Mark Brotherhood. Let me at it!"
