ITV have released their first trailer for the new 8-part Drama series Sandition featuring a song by Ruelle. The eagerly awaited Jane Austen adaptation has been created by Emmy and BAFTA-winning screenwriter Andrew Davies (known for his works on Les Misérables and Pride and Prejudice).
The drama series stars Rose Williams, Downton Abbey’s Theo James, Anne Reid, Leo Suter and Kris Marshalll who starred in Death in Paradise and Love Actually.
Sandition was written in 1817 and tells the story of the colourful relationship between an impulsive Charlotte Heywood and a daring Sidney Parker. An out-of-the-blue accident means that Charlotte has to move from her rural hometown of Willingden to the coastal resort of Sandition where she has to adjust to the peculiar characteristics of the locals.

The music in the 2019 ITV Sandition Trailer is a song called “Where We Come Alive” released in 2018 by American singer-songwriter Ruelle. The song is taken from her studio album Ode to Shadows.
Where was Sandition filmed?
The stately mansion that features in the Sandition series is a 17th-century baroque country house located near the village of Dyrham in South Gloucestershire. The property is owned by the National Trust who have released this YouTube video featuring interviews from the cast, and a behind-the-scenes look at filming around the grounds.
The Sandition series wasn’t filmed in one location per-se. Many scenes in this period drama make use of CGI and green screen effects mixed with real locations.
