Production of the irvine Welsh thriller ‘Crime’ begins in Edinburgh as a novel for the Britbox series

The production of a TV adaptation of a novel by Irvine Welsh began in Edinburgh.

The author is already known for “Trainspotting” and “Filth” but will now see another of his works on screens nationwide.

Crews came to the capital this week to begin filming ‘Crime’, an original series based on Welsh’s thriller.

In Edinburgh, Filth’s written sequel takes place in the story of Ray Lennox, a Lothian detective who tries to overcome a nervous breakdown by taking a vacation to Florida with his fiancée.

Dougray Scott said of the project, “Irvine Welsh is one of the greatest Scottish writers of all time and I am proud and excited to be working on his first television adaptation. It’s an honor to work with such a talented cast and creative team. “

Director James Strong added, “I am thrilled to begin producing this dramatic take on Irvine’s brilliant novel. With a great cast, we work together to create a classic work of pathos and true emotional quality based on gritty realism. Viewers can expect a dark, visceral, shocking ride. “
