A large film crew believed to be working on an upcoming series for Disney Plus has taken over parts of Pinner this week, creating a buzz of excitement among residents.
The crew, equipped with numerous trucks, filming tents, and cameras, has been diligently setting up shop in the area to the surprise of locals.
While no official confirmation has been made regarding the project, a member of the film crew disclosed to Harrow Online that Disney is indeed in the process of creating a gripping 10-part series entitled ‘Say Nothing.’
This crime series is said to be based on the haunting abduction and murder of Jean McConville, a widowed mother of ten children, in Northern Ireland. ‘Say Nothing’ will delve into the repercussions of this tragic crime over the years.
According to reports, filming for this highly-anticipated series has not been confined to Pinner alone. The crew has also made their presence known in Liverpool and Sheffield and other parts of the country – the series is due to be aired in 2024.
The primary filming location in Pinner appears to be centered around Blythwood Road. However, the film crew and their equipment have also been spotted on the surrounding roads, including Albury Drive and Buckland Drive, all located just off Uxbridge Road from Hatch End to Pinner.
This presence has resulted in increased traffic congestion during the school run, causing significant delays in the area.
Interestingly, Harrow Town Centre had its brush with the world of entertainment last year when Netflix chose it as a location for filming an episode of the acclaimed series ‘Black Mirror.’ The former Debenhams building underwent a remarkable transformation, becoming a makeshift 1970s shoe store as part of the production process.
This episode, titled ‘Demon ’79,’ is now available for viewing as part of the most recent series of ‘Black Mirror,’ providing locals with a unique opportunity to see their town centre transformed on screen.
However there is some concern about traffic in Pinner at the moment due to the filming, one resident took to the Harrow Online Group on Facebook to share their experience, stating, “Traffic chaos as it’s a major route to the local school, coupled with contra-flow on the main parallel road.”
With information about the filming being kept under wraps, many local residents have reached out to Harrow Online, seeking details and any other info that might be available about the show.
Stay tuned to Harrow Online for further news as we continue to explore the details about this series.
