Yesterday (September 03) a press day for Jenna’s upcoming mini series The Cry took place at the Soho Hotel in London.

She attended a photocall wearing a Chole Fall 2018 ensemble which featured a red & brown Baroque lurex jacquard knit turtleneck with slashed shoulders & split cuffs and the matching flared pants. The sleeves were adorned with the ‘Tilly’ brass gold bracelets. (thanks to The Fashionista Stories for the infos!)

Several photos from the event have now been added to the gallery, but check the site twitter @JennaColemanCom in case of more additions!

VARIETY – AMC Networks’ Sundance has acquired “The Cry” for the Sundance Now streaming service. Starring Jenna Coleman (“Victoria”), the four-part series will play on the Sundance linear channel after its SVOD launch.

The psychological drama is an adaptation of Helen FitzGerald’s bestselling book of the same name. It stars Coleman and Ewen Leslie (“Top of the Lake: China Girl”), and follows a child abduction and the impact it has on the family as they face the scrutiny of the media.

Jan Diedrichsen, general manager of Sundance Now, said: “’The Cry’ is exactly the sort of top-quality, psychological thriller that our discerning audience craves, and we are excited to be the exclusive home of ‘The Cry’ in the U.S.”

In the U.K., the series will air on the BBC and in Australia on its pubcaster counterpart the ABC. “The Cry” is produced by Glasgow-based Synchronicity Films with the backing of Creative Scotland, December Media, Film Victoria and Sunbird Media Ltd. Filming took place in Scotland and Australia.

DRG handles distribution and did the Sundance deal. It is lining up further pre-sales. “Synchronicity’s vision for the book and high-profile lead cast allowed us to bring ABC in as a co-production partner early on, and these same factors – now coupled with beautifully shot footage – are generating extensive pre-sale conversations,” said Elin Thomas, DRG’s EVP of sales.

Coleman will also soon be seen in the third season of “Victoria,” which is on ITV in the U.K. and PBS in the U.S. (source)

BBC MEDIA CENTRE – Filming in Scotland and Australia and directed by Glendyn Ivin (Safe Harbour, Gallipoli, The Beautiful Lie), The Cry is the first scripted television commission for Scottish-based production company Synchronicity Films.

Joanna (Coleman) and her husband Alistair (Leslie), travel with their baby from Scotland to Australia to see Alistair’s mother, Elizabeth (Gonet) and to fight for custody of Alistair’s daughter Chloe (Kavenagh) against his Australian ex-wife Alexandra (Keddie). However, when they arrive in Australia, Joanna and Alistair are forced to face an unthinkable tragedy that changes their lives and their marriage forever. It is the catalyst for a journey into the disintegrating psychology of a young woman, exposing the myths and truths of motherhood.

Elizabeth Kilgarriff, BBC Drama Senior Commissioning Editor, and Gaynor Holmes, BBC Drama Commissioning Executive, say: “We’re very excited to have started filming in Australia and to have such an incredible array of Australian talent joining Jenna and Ewen, topped off with some of Scotland’s most accomplished actors. Watching them bring Helen FitzGerald’s gripping, page-turner novel and Jacquelin Perske’s wonderful scripts to life is a joy and we can’t wait for BBC One audiences to see The Cry.”

Claire Mundell, Executive Producer for Synchronicity Films, says: “I am delighted to have such a talented cast joining Jenna, Ewen and the team. It’s so exciting to have such brilliant Scottish actors as Stella and Sophie joining our absolutely stellar Australian cast Asher, Alex, Markell and Shareena and to tell this thrilling story which spans the two countries. The start of shooting marks an incredible moment for our company as we start production on what is a truly international drama with Scottish roots. We could not be more thrilled to be shooting the show in the incredible Australian light of Melbourne, and contrasting that with the beautiful West End of Glasgow.”

The Cry is a 4×60’ drama written by Jacquelin Perske. The drama will be produced by Brian Kaczynski and Executive Produced by Claire Mundell for Synchronicity Films and Elizabeth Kilgarriff and Gaynor Holmes for BBC One. The Cry is currently being filmed in and around Melbourne and Glasgow with the support of Film Victoria and Creative Scotland. DRG hold the distribution rights. Stuart Menzies and December Media are the local Australian producer and ABC is the Australian broadcaster. (source)
