‘The Lodge’, a 10 x 22-minute teen-drama from the Disney Channel, has begun filming in Northern Ireland.

The series, which tells the story of fifteen-year-old Skye who returns with her father to her childhood holiday lodge in Northern Ireland, will be shot in Ballynahinch before airing on Disney Channel in 108 territories across EMEA later in the year. ‘The Lodge’ has received funding from the Northern Ireland Screen Fund supported by Invest NI.

The new series is inspired by the popular Disney Channel Israel original live-action series ‘North Star’ and has been commissioned by Disney EMEA, being produced by award-winning Zodiak Kids Studios, whose credits include ‘Mister Maker’, ‘The Secret Life of Boys’, ‘Waybuloo’, and ‘Millie Inbetween’.

Lee Walters (‘Wolfblood’ & ‘4 O’Clock Club’) serves as head writer, the series is produced by Raymond Lau (‘Dani’s Castle’ CBBC/ABC Australia), and executive produced by Steven Andrew (‘Secret Life of Boys’ CBBC/ABC Australia). Matt Bloom (‘Hank Zipzer’ CBBC) directs the series. Cast includes British actors Sophie Simnett who will play lead character Skye, Bethan Wright, Jade Alleyne, Jayden Revri, Joshua Sinclair-Evans, Luke Newton, and Thomas Doherty, as well as Danish actress Clara Rugaard, Dutch actress Sarah Nauta, and French actor Thomas Hudson.

The story follows Skye who is trying to use her new location to make a fresh start following the death of her mother. However, Skye’s new life will not be without complications as she navigates the everyday pressures of life as a teen; from making friends and ‘frenemies’, to a love triangle and a mystery that will shake her world. With nine original songs music is integral to the telling of this story, the central theme of which focuses on courage and staying truthful to who you are.
