New CBBC drama The Knot

CBBC has announced another new 3-part drama, The Knot,  being made in the North West of England by Lime Pictures, the production company behind Combat Kids and Ingenious.

The Knot is a mystery drama set in the English countryside revolving around the Boulsworths, a foster family offering emergency and short-term care, looking after children on a temporary basis until permanent arrangements can be made.

In the heart of the Lancashire Fells, on the edge of the village of Featherbridge, right at the geographical centre of Britain, is The Knot – one hundred and sixty seven hectares of up and down land that has its own fell, wood, beck and cave.

Much to the distrust of many of the locals, the Boulsworths are a foster family offering emergency and short-term care, looking after children on a temporary basis until permanent arrangements can be made – and Rocket and his sister Alli have to share their home and their parents with a regular stream of incomers.

But when 14 year-old Casey Parker and his 11 year-old sister Lena arrive at The Knot, Rocket and Alli find themselves at the centre of a dangerous mystery…

The Knot is a three part drama for CBBC (3x28 minutes), written by Nick Leather, and being made by Lime Pictures.

  1. Are there any auditions for this?

  2. In general, all auditions go through agencies so you need to have an agent to be able to audition. Open auditions are unusual but if there are any, they'll be posted on the Screenterrier blog.

    1. There are auditions, I found it on starsinmyeyes website. I was going to auditon be cause it would have been the perfect opportunity, but unfortuanlty the listing has expired. But if you are looking for auditons simalar to that i would definatly reccomend using starsinmyeyes. Its free, although if you dont register you can only see up to 5 auditions a day. I check reguarly as I dont want to miss opportunites, but it was very unfortunate because i was on holiday at that time! :( And it would have been perfect! But anyways, if anyones knows of any auditions for tv, musicals, anything really, please let me know. I am 11 years old. :)
