Klondike our new 4 x 60 min drama based on the famous Klondike gold rush received funding approval from the (BAI) Broadcasting Authority of Ireland through Round 18 of the Sound and Vision scheme. The series will be the first major drama to be directed by Dathai Keane who is currently editing the scripts with writer Marcus Fleming.
The series will be broadcast on TG4 who supported the application for Sound and Vision funding and it's expected to air in January 2015.
"We are all delighted to get the green light from the BAI", says Producer Pierce Boyce, "and while it is going to be challenging to recreate the Klondike in Galway we have already scouted locations and are just dying to get started on it. Next up we will get key crew in place on our dates and pre-casting has already been done so it's a matter of seeing if all our key players are available on the dates we want."
Klondike was developed with support from TG4, Abú Media and The Irish FIlm Board.
