Matt Smith will make TV directing debut: an episode of the Sky Arts series Playhouse Presents

One of the best news I’ve read today is about Matt Smith: he is going to direct his first TV show, an episode of the Sky Arts series Playhouse Presents.

The new run of one-off dramas will include Cargese, described by Sky Arts as a “unique piece of poetic realism which mines the tragic seam of adolescent love and loss”.

Directed by Smith and written by award-winning playwright Simon Stephens, it stars Craig Roberts (Submarine), Joe Cole (Skins, The Hour) and Avigail Tlalim (The Town) as a group of disaffected teenagers in south London – Cargèse being a village on the west coast of Corsica which is wistfully mentioned by one of the drama’s characters.

Cargese begins filming next week and is scheduled to air on Sky Arts 1 on 25 April 2013. Smith will not appear in the programme himself.

You can find more information about the news in the Radio Times article. I wish him best luck. 😀
