 'THE CONFESSIONS OF FRANNIE LANGTON' (in post-production)

TV series - ITV / Drama Republic

Four-part drama set in early 1800's London, produced by Drama Republic for ITV and adapted by author and writer Sara Collins from her breath-taking debut novel of the same name.

directed by Andrea Harkin
produced by Carol Harding
EP Drama Rebublic Greg Brenman and Becky de Souza

The Confessions of Frannie Langton is a new four-part series that follows a young protagonist born into a life of slavery who is fighting to tell her own story.

We see Frannie Langton move from a Jamaican plantation to a Mayfair mansion owned by celebrated scientist George Benham and his wife Madame Marguerite Benham, but Frannie has been sent there to serve the household as a maid, much to her chagrin. 

When a terrible crime is committed, the blame is placed on Frannie, with the series following her as she fights for justice. The gripping new period drama is coming to ITV soon, and is adapted for the screen by the original author, Sara Collins who won the Costa first novel award in 2019.

Commenting on the series, Sara Collins said: "For so long I've wondered why we never see period dramas featuring black protagonists that also happen to be 'whodunnits', love stories or juicy, addictive dramas, rather than stories of victimhood. It's an absolute dream come true to be collaborating with Drama Republic and ITV on adapting Frannie for television, even more meaningful because I hope it will be all of those things, and because I know how powerful it is to see yourself represented on-screen in fresh stories that stamp all over stale old stereotypes."

'LOVE  ME'
feature film, 2013


directed by Maryna Er-Gorbach & Mehmet Bahadir Er
produced by Olena Yershova (MY JOY, directed by Sergej Loznitsa, Cannes 2010)
shot in Kiev, Ukraine and Istanbul, Turkey
TATO FILM Kiev / KARAKIRMIZI FILM Istanbul 2012

The second feature of talented young director duo Maryna Er Gorbach and Mehmet Bahadir Er LOVE ME is an unusual romance combining comedy and drama in an intricate and touching style.

CEMAL is indifferently willing in an arranged marriage, when his uncle and cousin drag him to a sex holiday in Ukraine in the occasion of his bachelor party.

“The set-up of Maryna Er Gorbach and Mehmet Bahadir Er’s sophomore feature Love Me promises a cross-cultural romantic comedy of the traditional and predictable kind, but ends up by delivering something rather more interesting. Starting out in the vein of an English social comedy, it appears to head for Pretty Woman territory before pitching itself squarely as a serious-minded piece of social drama.”  Hollywood Reporter
'..an adventurous night through the snowy streets of Kiev they will experience affection, respect and love. Sprinkled with hilarious note of cultural clashes and an endearing display of the kindness of strangers, this idiosyncratic "comedy drama" will warm hearts in the most unexpected way.
If there would be a Kiev episode on NIGHT ON EARTH this would be it!' (Partras Panou)
