Docklands - Discover the Hub of Empire!



Ape Media is raising funds for our pilot episode of 'Docklands'. Having shot a low budget mini-pilot, we want to bring this incredible concept to life in a full-length episode that will appeal to fans of gritty period pieces like 'Peaky Blinders' and 'Whitechapel'.

Take a walk down with us in 1851 alongside Aedan Kelly as he flees famine and seeks a new life. Browse the exotica of Mr. Edwards, spare a farthing to make sure the good work of the Daughters of Jesus continues, tip your Hat to Mr. Halton should you see him as he owns all of Princess Victoria Dock (the parts which matter), try Lizzie Mayhew if you want a bed for the night from someone who won’t ask questions and make sure you don’t cross Mr. Barker, he’s a connected man so they say. But you will need to keep your wits about you, there have been two suspicious deaths in as many weeks, talk of trouble amongst the Stevedores and a few journalists sniffing around who will keep quiet if they know what's good for them. See a London that is unrecognisable in some ways and very familiar in others featuring rich characters in an evocative setting.

Your donation will help us bring the project to fruition giving it the best possible production values and a springboard to the beginning of an absorbing ten part series. Please Donate.
