Filming is currently underway in Newcastle of the follow-up series for the massively successful long-running CBBC series "The Story of Tracy Beaker". The 13 episode drama has Tracy Beaker (Dani Harmer) (formerly of Redroofs Theatre School, now represented by Cole Kitchenn) returning as an adult to cope with the next wave of Dumping Ground kids - a brand new cast of children with distinctive problems and from differing backgrounds.Taking one of the lead roles as Sapphire, a 14 year old with a bolshie attitude, is Saffron Coomber (represented by Mark Jermin Management) who appeared earlier this year in the CBBC hard-hitting drama Runaway, whilst another Mark Jermin client newcomer Amy Leigh Hickman from Bexhill will be playing the role of sweet 9 year old Carmen. Noah Marullo (SRA Agency) is playing the role of Gus, an autistic boy.
Beaker's Back is due to be broadcast early next year.
