All we know about Baz Ashmawy's new family drama 'Faithless'
"It's been a long time coming. Seeing it come together is strange but very rewarding"
Baz Ashmawy has revealed details of his new series ‘Faithless’ which began filming this week in Bray, Co. Wicklow.
The new Virgin Media comedy-drama series was created by Ashmawy, who also stars in the show.
According to a description of the upcoming drama, ‘Faithless’ will follow "an Irish-Egyptian dad, Sam, who is presented with the life-altering responsibility of raising his three young daughters alone after his wife dies.
“That is until his irresponsible but irresistible younger brother moves in to 'help', but never leaves.
"The multicultural family tries to cope with their sudden loss in their own separate ways.
“However, despite emotions running at an understandable high, the family finds ways to pull together and manages to find light in the darkness and humour in the saddest of times."
Speaking about the project, Presenter Ashmawy described Faithless as "my baby".
"So I love it," he continued.
"It's been a long time coming. Seeing it come together is strange but very rewarding.
“It's weird to put something down on paper and see these actors bring it to life. It's great!
"Bray is where all the filming happens. Nice locations, and everybody has been very accommodating to us. It's been great."
