Evermoor

The Disney Channel has teamed up with Lime Pictures, makers of Nickelodeon's House of Anubis, to film the first live-action Disney series to be shot in the UK.

The four-part supernatural series called Evermoor will tell the story of a 14-year-old girl, Tara Bailey, uprooted from her urban American home to move to to a spooky remote rural village in "middle England" with her best-selling novelist mother and British stepfather. Teamed with her brother Jake and her British step-siblings Seb and Bella, she suddenly falls into a web of danger and intrigue and must fight to save her new family home, Evermoor Manor. Evermoor will be filmed in a studio in Warrington and on location in Cheshire's Arley Hall which will become "Evermoor Manor".

David Levine, vice president of programming, production and strategic development for Disney Channels in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said: "It gives us a great opportunity to work with British talent both in front and behind of the camera.

"We will take full advantage of the fact it is a series set in a British village, with an incredible British backdrop and location at the heart of the story. You'll see a lot of imagery and settings that will be very different to things we have done before but it is produced for a global audience."

The series, described by Disney as a "mystery adventure punctuated with comedy", will air this autumn, and will be shown on the Disney Channel in more than 160 countries.

"I am very excited to have been asked to play Demelza in the BBC’s new adaptation of these classic novels. I am conscious of the fact that the original series had a huge following and was tremendously popular, all I can promise is that I will do my utmost to do justice to the spirit of Winston Graham’s iconic character."

The Millie Show

The Millie Show is a new family sitcom coming to CBBC, starring rising Scottish starlet 12-year-old Millie Innes.

Described as poignant and funny in equal measure, the show tells the story of a young girl whose parents have just split up. Millie loves the upsides of her new family set-up - two chances to celebrate Christmas, two birthdays, and two bedrooms. However, the downsides are more tricky to come to terms with, as her parents start new relationships - those new partners have kids... and it looks like they all want to move in!

Millie (represented by Colours Management) played Maisy in  CBBC series Dani's House, and received rave reviews for her role as Marlee Brodie in the award winning BBC Drama Case Histories as Jason Issacs daughter. Millie also starred alongside Suranne Jones playing David Tennant's youngest daughter Evie, in the critically acclaimed 2010 drama Single Father.

The Millie Show will be made for CBBC by The Foundation and will be filmed in Dumbarton.

'Pan' finds its Peter

After a long international search, including an open casting call in the UK, the new Warner Bros feature Pan has found its young actor to take the title role.

Australian actor Levi Miller has landed the role according to Variety. He joins fellow Australian Hugh Jackman who will play the pirate Blackbeard, Garrett Hedlund as Hook and Rooney Mara who is in talks to play Tiger Lily. Joe Wright will direct from a script written by Jason Fuchs.

The film will be a new take on the classic story. It is set during World War II and follows an orphan who is kidnapped by pirates and brought to Neverland, where he discovers he’s destined to save the land from the pirate Blackbeard.

The world being created is international — and with a very different title character than previously imagined, according to reports.

Director Joe Wright was looking for a new discovery for the role of Pan and Levi Miller is a relative newcomer — his biggest credit to date is an episode of TV series Terra Nova.
