Emmy Award-Winning Scottish actor Brian Cox (Medici, War & Peace, Churchill) returned to his roots like his character Logan Roy. The locations can be seen over two episodes first going out from 23rd September.

Created by Academy Award nominee Jesse Armstong (Fresh Meat, In the Loop, Peep Show), Succession tracks the lives of the Roy family as they contemplate their future once their aging father (Brian Cox) begins to step back from the media and entertainment conglomerate they control. Beginning where season one dramatically left off, season two follows the Roy family as they struggle to retain control of their empire, and while the future looks increasingly uncertain, it is the past that threatens to ultimately destroy them.

The series also stars Matthew MacFadyen (Ripper Street, Howard’s End, Pride & Prejudice) and Sarah Snook (The Glass Castle, Winchester, Black Mirror).

The production was supported by Screen Scotland’s Production Growth Fund and was also a brilliant opportunity for work experience for students of Screen Academy Scotland’s Screen NETs Programme.

Succession brought Production Manager, Donald MacKinnon and Location Manager, Martin Henderson to the region. TayScreen, the screen office for the Councils of Dundee and Perth & Kinross and Dundee City Council were delighted to welcome the team and provide support.

V&A Dundee and Gleneagles Hotel Auchterarder in Perthshire were key locations.

V&A Dundee is an iconic new museum of design on the city’s Tay River Waterfront. It’s the first V&A outside London and its unique ship-shaped architecture reflects the city’s links with sea. It’s right next to the Polar exploration sailing ship of Captain Scott, Discovery.

Gleneagles is a 5-star resort hotel that opened its doors in 1924. It’s set in magnificent countryside in and is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World. It combines an array of luxurious experiences including the hotel, three championship golf courses, an award-winning spa, and Restaurant Andrew Fairlie, the only restaurant in Scotland to hold two Michelin stars.

And we’re all fingers crossed for HBO’s Succession which has five Emmy nominations including Outstanding Drama Series. The Television Academy 71st Emmys are held on Sunday 22nd September.
