Drama productions in and around Liverpool have been handed a £1m boost in a local authority bid to use local talent to help drive the city’s economic growth.

The Liverpool Film Office’s LCR Production Fund, which has invested more than £1.7m in six dramas since it was set up two years ago, will allocate the top-up investment.

It has been provided by Liverpool City Region Combined Authority’s Strategic Investment Fund and will prioritise productions employing local talent and production services.

Dramas that have benefited from the fund, including Jimmy McGovern’s BBC1 prison drama Time and Jack Thorne’s Channel 4 care-home single Help, have collectively delivered more than £12m of direct inward investment into the local economy.

Upcoming BBC1 police drama The Responder and ITV Studios’ new take on Len Deighton’s The Ipcress File have also benefited from the fund, which is overseen by The Wrong Trousers and Lady Macbeth producer Christopher Moll.
