The Singapore Grip: Now In Production

The filming for the new drama series, “The Singapore Grip“, has begun in Malaysia and Peerless are delighted to have been asked to supervise and provide the Visual Effects for the complete 6 part series.

This new drama Adapted from Booker Prize winner J.G. Farrell’s novel by Oscar winning screenwriter and playwright Christopher Hampton  (Atonement, Dangerous Liaisons), The Singapore Grip is an epic story set during World War Two, centering on a British family living in Singapore at the time of the Japanese invasion.

The Blackett family’s prosperous world of tennis parties, cocktails and deferential servants seems unchanging. But it is poised on the edge of the abyss: This is the eve of the Fall of Singapore and, as we know, of much else besides. Not only the Blacketts, their friends and enemies, but many individuals are caught up in the events. Singapore at this historical watershed has never been so faithfully and passionately recreated.
