Filming is underway in Ulster on a new comedy drama starring Warren Clarke and Anthony Head.
Desperados, by William Ivory, is being shot around Ballywalter, Portaferry and Bangor and is the third BBC Network drama filmed in the province this year - following Fairytales and Messiah.
The comedy stars Warren Clarke, best-known for his role in Dalziel and Pascoe, and Anthony Head of Little Britain and Buffy fame, and also features Dean Lennox Kelly and Jenny Agutter.
Clarke plays Syd Woolsey who, along with his old friend Maurice Riley (Anthony Head), returns from the good life on the Costa del Crime, where they have spent their ill-gotten gains, to a quiet Devon fishing village, where they plan to eke out their retirement fishing and availing themselves of the NHS.
However, the quiet life is not for them and, with money running short, they are quickly drawn back into a life of crime, only to find that they've got a lot to learn.
Richard Williams, chief executive of Northern Ireland Screen, said: "We are delighted to welcome Company Pictures and their remarkable cast to Northern Ireland to film Desperados.
"This is the third BBC Network drama to come to Northern Ireland this year. First we had Fairy Tales and then Messiah.
"This is further vindication that our strategy is working and the hard work is paying off. Northern Ireland's television production sector is on the rise and we will continue to lobby for even more productions to come and film in Northern Ireland."
Desperados creator William Ivory said: "It's a dream of a cast. And what's especially brilliant is the breadth of the talent on board.
"Desperados is an ensemble piece which means every character relies on the one next to them to give full value in terms of what the script is trying to achieve.
"And that means, in an ideal world, you're looking to fill every role with a heavy hitter - but in truth you seldom achieve that. This time I think we have."
Desperados is directed by Will Sinclair and produced by Richard Burrell, while the executive producers are George Faber and Charlie Pattinson.
