BBC’s ‘Line of Duty’ Season 2 Currently Filming in Belfast
25 Jun 2013 : By Kevin Cronin
Line of Duty's second series filming in Belfast.
BBC Two’s ‘Line of Duty’, about a police anti-corruption unit charged with investigating conspiracy with their own ranks, is currently filming its second series in Belfast, supported by Northern Ireland Screen.

Actor Robert Lindsay recently departed the series following creative differences, with Mark Bonnar (‘Casualty’, ‘Silent Witness’) reported to have been cast as his replacement.

Series two of ‘Line of Duty’ is funded by the Northern Ireland Screen Fund, supported by Invest NI, and partly-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

Created, written and executive-produced by Jed Mercurio, ‘Line of Duty’ follows a fictitious police anti-corruption team called AC-12 and is produced by World Productions.

The first six-episode series achieved record ratings of 4.2 million viewers, the highest for a BBC Two drama for a decade.

Season two starts with a bang as three police officers are killed in an ambush and a protected witness seriously injured, kick-starting a new storyline.

’Line of Duty’ was re-commissioned by BBC Two Controller Janice Hadlow and Controller of BBC Drama Commissioning Ben Stephenson.

The series is produced by Peter Norris (‘Between the Lines’) and directed by Douglas Mackinnon (‘Doctor Who’) for the first block of filming and Daniel Nettheim (‘The Hunter’, ‘Rush’) for the second block.

Executive producers are Jed Mercurio (‘Bodies’, ‘Cardiac Arrest’) and Simon Heath (‘The Fear’, ‘The Bletchley Circle’) for World Productions, and Stephen Wright for BBC Northern Ireland.
