Property agency Mason Owen has secured a letting at a trading estate in the city which will be the filming location for the new entertainment series. Tony McDonough reports
Graylaw Trading Estate on the outskirts of Liverpool isn’t a place that usually attracts a lot of attention.
But now, a pretty ordinary looking 32,000 sq ft industrial unit at the Aintree facility will be home to something a little more extraordinary – providing the base for the filming of a ‘groundbreaking’ new entertainment series for global TV giant Netflix.
Agents for the estate, Liverpool-based Mason Owen, have secured a letting with the unnamed production company who will be making the new now.
Louis Holt, surveyor at Mason Owen, said: ‘With this letting, we are helping our retained client, reduce their voids from 87% across the estate to just 36%. We look forward to seeing the work produced in the space on our screens in the not-so-distant future.”
Netflix started life in California in 1997 as a mail order DVD rental business but eventually morphed into a global subscription-based streaming service offering a huge library of TV shows and films to more than 150m subscribers across the world.
In 2012 it expanded its business to become an active producer and distributor of both TV series and films and is now producing more than 100 pieces of original content every year.
