Zodiak Kids & Family Productions UK, part of Banijay Kids & Family, today announces it will produce a second season of the gripping mystery sci-fi adventure series, Silverpoint. A co-production with CBBC, ZDF and ZDF Studios, the 13 x 22’ sci-fi drama starts filming in Northern Ireland from August and will launch next year.
The returning cast includes Katy Byrne (Meg), Oliver Cunliffe (Louis), Aoife Hughes (Bea), Krish Misra (Glen) and Maiya Silveston (Kaz).
At the end of series one, Louis, Kaz, Meg and Glen discover they’re not so special after all. In fact, they’re only one of four groups of kids, each with their own alien Artefact. What they sensed would be the end of their adventure, becomes the beginning of an even more impossible journey.
Series two of Silverpoint follows these four eclectic groups, some who will become friends and others rivals, as they train for a game set in four alternate realities controlled by a mysterious extra-terrestrial presence. And the prize they’re fighting for? To save the world.
Cheryl Taylor, Creative Director, Zodiak Kids & Family Productions UK says: “Silverpoint is a visually powerful drama with compelling characters and a unique and finely crafted storyline that has resonated with audiences globally. We’re fortunate to have many of the most talented creatives in the industry working on Silverpoint alongside a supremely talented cast of young actors. Zodiak Kids & Family is delighted to be bringing more tantalising sci-fi adventures to our audience in this second series”.
Created by Lee Walters and Steven Andrew, the show will be Executive Produced for Zodiak Kids & Family Productions UK by Cheryl Taylor and Benoit Di Sabatino. The Series Producer is Trevor Klein, and the Directors are Amy Coop, Aidan Largey and Louise Ní Fhiannachta.
