Dublin-Filmed 'Life of Crime', starring Hayley Atwell, Begins Tonight on UTV at 9pm
10 May 2013 : By Kevin Cronin
Hayley Atwell stars in 'Life of Crime'.
Golden Globe nominee Hayley Atwell - best known for playing Peggy Carter in Marvel's 'Captain America: The First Avenger' - heads new police drama 'Life of Crime' which was partly filmed in Dublin last November and begins tonight on UTV at 9pm.

The old John Player factory on Dublin's South Circular Road served as the filming location for many interior scenes, before the shoot moved on to London - lasting a total of six weeks of principal photography.

The series was produced by James Flynn of Wicklow-based Octagon Films, along with Emma Kingsman-Lloyd (DCI Banks) and Oliver Frampton; and executive produced by Douglas Rae (Nowhere Boy) and Michael Parke (Raw) for London-based Ecosse.

'Life of Crime' follows the tale of risk-taking policewoman Denise Woods as she rises through the ranks of the London Metropolitan Police over three decades, beginning with the Brixton riots of 1985 where she encounters her first murder scene and becomes obsessed with tracking down the killer of a 15 year old girl.

The three hour-long episodes were directed by Jim Loach ('Oranges & Sunshine') and written by Irish crime writer Declan Croghan ('Waking the Dead'), with director of photography Ruairi O’Brien (Line of Duty) among the Irish crew members who worked on the production.

Other cast and crew include art director Martin Goulding ('Byzantium'); line producer Jo Homewood ('Titanic: Blood & Steel'); first AD Owen Magee ('Trivia'); locations manager Niall Martin ('Titanic: Blood & Steel'); and costume designer Leonie Prendergast ('All Is By My Side').

Dublin's Screen Scene carried out post-production with Selina MacArthur (DCI Banks).

Ms Atwell also starred in Jimi Hendrix biopic 'All Is By My Side', opposite Outkast's Andre Benjamin - another major production which filmed in Dublin last summer and benefitted from section 481 tax incentives.

A trailer for 'Life of Crime' is available to view below:
