And so the merry-go-round continues. We’ve seen more casting news, counter news, rumour and conjecture for the female lead on True Detective than we care to shake a totem at. And now news reaches me that seven – seven! – actresses are now reading for the lead female role. Please, just get this sorted already. In the meantime, here’s the skinny.
Jack Thorne, one of the hottest young writers in the country, is behind this strong new crime drama. Thorne has been responsible for things like Skins and The Fades in the past, which have told the stories of disenfranchised youth, and even though this and his aforementioned projects have appeared on channels like E4 and BBC3, and have been squarely aimed at younger audiences, there has been much to like. Glue is also being positioned in the youth market, but even though some may shirk at anything made by the man behind Skins, Glue is absolutely worth a watch.
