As Da Vinci's Demons season 3 is scheduled to start filming tomorrow, an interview with new show runner John Shiban has been shared by The Guardian. The interview is part of an article exploring the incentives for big budget TV shows to film in UK.
John Shiban is an Emmy-nominated US scriptwriter and producer who has worked on The X Files and Breaking Bad. But, as of this week, he’s working in Swansea. Shiban is the new showrunner on Da Vinci’s Demons, a drama series made for the Starz cable network in the US. In common with an increasing number of US shows, Da Vinci’s Demons is taking advantage of George Osborne’s new high-end TV drama tax credit.
