Farmhouse style sinks are being replaced by modern bathrooms, as part of a series of new TV and film adaptations of books about a rural, hard-working family in the 1950s.
The series, ‘Grey Kitchen’, will be directed by Tim Hunt and will be based on the novel of the same name by Mary Ann Duffy, which was published in 2017.
It follows the story of Mary Ann, her family and a handful of other residents as they struggle to stay afloat during the Great Depression.
It also stars Maggie Smith and Will Poulter.
It is the first new series to be created by Hunt since the release of the film version of the novel.
It was a huge success at the box office, but has since been cancelled by Netflix.
The new series is set to be shown in 2018 and the first episode is due to air in 2019.
Hunt said the new series was inspired by the books, but not necessarily by the original book.
He said it would take a while to work out what would be in the water and what wouldn’t.
“There are some changes we haven’t yet been able to make,” Hunt said.
“It’s all about the story, the character and the way we tell it, and we can’t get that done at the moment.”
But the fact that it’s all going to be written by the same people, the same cast, is a big part of the attraction.
“The new film, which Hunt has said he is “very happy” with, is due for release in 2019 and will star Will Poulster, Maggie Smith, James McAvoy, Sarah Gadon and Mark Strong.
Hunt previously said he was “looking forward” to filming the series.”
We’ve got a very long road ahead of us but I think we’re on a good path,” he said.
