BBC Two’s modern slavery drama Doing Money will premiere on Monday November 5th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Doing Money follows Ana, a young Romanian woman snatched in broad daylight from a London street, trafficked to Ireland and used as a sex slave in a series of ‘pop up’ brothels. Ana’s story offers a tense and thought-provoking thriller, with powerful insights into the challenges of policing a form of modern slavery that hides in plain sight. It exposes just how big business “doing money” is.
The one-off 90 minute fact-based drama, which was penned by Vanity Fair scribe Gwyneth Hughes, is being produced by Renegade Pictures in association with Irish broadcaster RTE and supported by Northern Ireland Screen and stars Anca Dumitra, Allen Leech, Tom Glynn-Carney, Dragos Bucur, Alec Secareanu, Cosmina Stratan, Voica Oltean, Alina Serban, Turlough Convery, Karen Hassan and Jonathan Harden. It was commissioned by BBC Two Controller Patrick Holland and the BBC’s Controller of Drama Piers Wenger. Mike Dormer is the series producer, while The Boy With The Top Knot helmer Lynsey Miller is the director. The executive producers are Alex Cooke for Renegade Pictures, and Lucy Richer for BBC Two.
