The story follows three families that each lived in Lightfields farmhouse at different time periods (1944, 1975 and 2012) but who are linked by a spine-chilling presence: the ghost of a teenage girl who died in mysterious and tragic circumstances.
Dakota Blue Richards (The Golden Compass, Skins), Sam Hazeldine (Bridget Jones, The Raven), Jill Halfpenny (Eastenders, Waterloo Rd), Kris Marshall (Love Actually, My Family), Danny Miller (Emmerdale), Antonia Clarke (Skins, A Mother’s Son), Lucy Cohu (Gosford Park), Danny Webb (Life Begins), Neil Jackson (Upstairs Downstairs), Karla Crome (Misfits) and Sophie Thompson (Four Weddings and a Funeral) all join the cast.
Lightfields is a brand new story and original script from writer Simon Tyrrell (She’s Gone, The Vice) following on from the hugely successful drama Marchlands which debuted on ITV in 2011 and secured a place in the top ten most watched dramas on television across all channels that year.Like Marchlands, Lightfields has been developed from an original US pilot called ‘The Oaks’ created by David Schulner for Twentieth Century Fox Television.
Cherry Gould (Above Suspicion: Silent Scream) will produce Lightfields and ITV Studios’ Kate Lewis (Mr Selfridge, Marchlands) will executive produce. The 5 x 60 minute episodes will be directed by Damon Thomas (Prisoners’ Wives, Monroe) and filming begins in August in Hertfordshire and West Sussex
