Posted by AVAnti Productions on October 18, 2014 at 12:10 PM Comments comments (0)

AVANTI P&M is very pleased to announce that our summer addition to the agency, actor ALLEN WATTS has been cast in a new Channel 5 series FIRST KILL LAST KILL,directed by Nick Aarons and produced by Crackit Productions. ALLEN WATTS will inherit the role of Harold Mackay, the father of Patrick Mackay who was a serial killer back in the 70s.



FIRST KILL LAST KILL is a documentary type series,

Commissioned as a six part series after the success of the Stockwell Strangler, with the help of leading experts, Prof. Wilson will examine this first kill in frighteningly forensic detail to get deep inside the mind of serial killers. He will walk in the murderers footsteps to understand how an unhinged member of society transforms into a violent and brutal slayer of innocent victims. What did they learn from their first kill and how did they apply it to their next? Then using the first and last kill to drive the narrative he'll forensically examine how our subject evolved from first time murderer to sophisticated serial killer throughout their killing spree, before pulling apart the details of the last grizzly slaying that led to their capture and subsequent demise. What was it about this last kill that led to their undoing? By comparing the first and last kill we'll bring fascinating and intelligent new insight into the life and mind of some of Britain's most notorious killers.

AVANTI P&M is very excited to announce that our wonderful actress CAROLINE BURNS COOKE is going to Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2014 for a full  run with the American production of THE TRIAL OF JANE FONDA, with Oscar nominater, Golden Globe winner, actress Anne Archer in lead role, understudied by our brilliant actress. 

THE TRIAL OF JANE FONDA

has just finished a short preview period in London at The Gatehouse Theatre and

will be seen in Edinburgh at The Assembly Rooms, opening on Wednesday, 30th July.




Jane Fonda is one of the most controversial anti-war activists in American history. On 18th June 1988, in a little-known event, Fonda confronted a group of hostile Vietnam veterans at a church in Waterbury, Connecticut, who were boycotting the filming of her movie STANLEY & IRIS, co-starring Robert De Niro. They feel she has betrayed the country and them. A former chaplain makes it possible for both sides to hear each other. This is based on a true incident. The vets are loosely based on the real men who attended. The true story of what Fonda actually did and how her actions helped end the Vietnam War has never been told before.

Starring Oscar nominated, Golden Globe winner, Anne Archer (Fatal Attraction, Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger).

Written and directed by seven-time Emmy-winning producer/director, Terry Jastrow.
