Apple TV’s latest thriller series stars Idris Elba as a negotiator caught up in a hijacking aboard a flight from Dubai to London. Filming took place during 2022 in a number of locations in London and south east England.
Stansted Airport and Westfield Shopping Centre doubled for Dubai International Airport. Other locations included The QE II centre, The Foreign Office, Millbrook Test Track and Kington University.
When the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020 curtailed the shoot for Billions Season 5 in New York, the Showtime producers decided to bring their production to the UK to complete the missing scenes. We used various locations around London to double for New York, including New street square and The Ned. We were also privileged to be allowed to film a very private estate near Winchester, which became Bobby Axelrods' upstate New York mansion.
