Hit Stories: the making of Tin Star

Great TV programmes are central to the success of many of the UK’s biggest brands: they ensure the advertising associated with them is widely seen, trusted and effective.

In this series, John Plunkett talks to the people who make the nations’ hit shows and asks how it’s done and what’s coming next. In a world where advertisers are themselves looking to get the attention of big audiences, or perhaps make their own content, there is much to learn from the very best in the business.

In this episode, we go behind the curtain of Tin Star, the binge-worthy series starring Tim Roth. Throughout the series we see the ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ protagonist negotiating his way around a corrupt small-town in the Rockies. John Plunkett discusses the heavy plot themes of alcoholism and violence along with the use of dark humour, the challenges of shooting in a Canadian location, and why the show’s primary goal is to entertain.
