Join WFTV for an interview with executive producer Alison Jackson and lead actors Tim Roth and Genevieve O’Reilly, to discuss the third and final series of Sky Original Tin Star, co-produced by Gaumont UK and Kudos.
In this event hosted by Rhianna Dhillon, the panel will be sharing a behind the scenes insight into creating a British drama for a global audience, reflecting on how it has evolved over three series taking Tin Star from Canada to Liverpool, and revealing what it was like working on the show.
Audience members will have an exclusive opportunity to watch a preview of episode one from the new Sky Atlantic series, Tin Star: Liverpool.
The panel discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A.
The third and final season of Tin Star is the most thrilling, shocking and darkly comic rollercoaster ride yet. It tells the story of Jack, Angela and Anna returning to Liverpool, where their story began twenty years ago, to face their deadliest enemies in a battle with the past to win freedom in the present. But instead, our heroes are forced to face up to the devastating and inescapable truth about who they really are.
