Dutch director Shariff Korver directed three episodes of the eight-part British comedy thriller series »Temple«. Carice van Houten (Game of Thrones, Brimstone) stars, alongside Mark Strong (The Kingsman) and Daniel Mays (Star Wars: Rogue One).
»Temple« is set deep below the streets of London. Descending past Temple tube in the beating heart of the city, lies a dark secret. An illegal clinic has been set up in an abandoned subterranean network of tunnels.
Daniel played by Mark Strong, is a surgeon driven by personal tragedy to treat anyone who is willing to pay for medical help outside the system. Aided by Lee a disgruntled transport employee, played by Daniel Mays, and Anna a guilt-ridden medical researcher played by Carice van Houten, they treat a variety of increasingly desperate and highly dangerous patients, as Daniel’s morality is tested to the limit.
Shariff Korver attracted a lot of attention with his previous series Fenix (2018) at the Series Mania Festival in Lille earlier this year. In collaboration with his agents from European Talent Network, Henneman Agency (NL) en Curtis Brown (UK) Korver convinced the »Temple« producers and landed the job.
