Singer turned actor Will Young is to star in a brand new six-part thriller for Living. The Pop Idol winner will play Ryan who lives in a block of flats which used to be a Victorian hospital for the insane – and its haunted. The six part thriller will also star Theo James, Charlotte Salt and Ashley Madekwe and is Living’s first foray into original drama – having previously relied on US imports such as Ghost Whisperer and Medium.

 

Bedlam, as the drama is titled, is being produced for Living by Red Production Company whose previous hits include Queer as Folk for Channel Four, Casanova and Clocking Off for the BBC and Second Coming for ITV. The role marks Will Young’s first major regular drama role but he has had previous acting experience appearing in the 2005 film Mrs Henderson Presents, guest starring in Skins and ITV’s Miss Marple: The Mirror Crack’d Side to Side.

 

In recent months Living has stepped up its high profile commissions by poaching Katie Price for ITV2, acquiring the UK rights to the New Zealand soap Shortland Street and commissioning its first comedy series.
