Ciaran McMenamin Begins Shooting BBC Crime Drama ‘Hope Street’.

  • Posted On:April 22, 2021

Hope Street was announced by the BBC as one of their latest commissions in partnership with Northern Ireland Screen. With the series being set in the fictional town of Port Devine on the Northern Ireland coast, it will focus on Port Devine’s police department and have a strong Irish feel to the series. 

The series is based on the mysterious arrival of English Detective Constable Alimah Kahn, the first Muslim police officer in the town’s history. The character-led series combines a long-running serial narrative with self-contained crime stories in each episode. 

Alongside Ciaran McMenamin as Finn the series also stars Brid Brennan (Brooklyn) as Concepta, Des McAleer (The Crown) as Barry, and Amara Karan (The Night of) as Alimah. 

Carla-Maria Lawson, Head of BBC Daytime and Early Peak, said in an interview: “I’m thrilled that we’ll be bringing the beautiful backdrop of Northern Ireland to BBC One Daytime viewers in this exciting new drama, which is coming from such a stellar team. She continued to say "I’m sure our audiences will love the intriguing characters who inhabit Hope Street and relish soaking in their surroundings.” 

We look forward to seeing Ciaran McMenamin in action once again. Ciaran also starred in our movie 'The Convent' (AKA 'Heretiks').  

The series is directed by Sean Glynn, who also directed the short film ‘Lead Belly’ which Templeheart Films supported. 

Series one will air on BBC Daytime and BBC One Northern Ireland in 2022 and will exclusively premiere on BritBox in North America
