‘Bonus Track’

UK sales outfit Bankside Films has released a first look at its upcoming comedy, Bonus Track – the debut feature from Julia Jackman.

Set in 2006, it follows a small-town 16-year-old with dreams of being a gifted musician. When the son of an iconic musical duo enrols at his school, a powerful bond between the pair of teens begins to grow. It stars Joe Anders (pictured, right), Samuel Small (pictured, left), Josh O’Connor and Susan Wokoma.

Production on the feature, which shot in York, has now wrapped.

It is produced by Helen Simmons and Stephanie Aspin for the UK’s Erebus Pictures, in association with Lunapark Pictures and Fortune Films. Campbell Beaton is also producing, with Savannah Power co-producing for Erebus. Sky has pre-bought UK and Germany rights, with further finance from Screen Yorkshire, Bankside and Quickfire.

Jackman’s previous credits include directing BBC comedy pilot Amicable.
