Filmed and set in Scotland, The Control Room is a gripping new drama from Hartswood Films, written by BAFTA and RTS award winning writer Nick Leather (Mother’s Day; Murdered for Being Different).

The Control Room tells the story of Gabe, an ordinary man who works as an emergency call handler for the Scottish Ambulance Service in Glasgow. His world is turned upside down when he receives a desperate life-and-death call from a woman who appears to know him. With Gabe under pressure to work out who she is, he makes a decision that threatens to have devastating consequences.

The Control Room is Executive Produced by Gaynor Holmes for the BBC and Elaine Cameron for Hartswood Films. The producer is Eric Coulter and director is Amy Neil.

Writer, Nick Leather says: “I’ve loved every minute of working with Hartswood and the BBC on The Control Room, and am thankful for the faith and support they’ve shown in me and the project. It’s a head spinning drama with a heart, and I can’t wait to collaborate with Amy Neil to now bring Gabe and Samantha to life, shooting on location in Scotland.”
