Lorries have appeared on Victoria Road in Broomhall, where filming is understood to be taking place for the teen drama Zero Chill.

The programme is being made by the production company Lime Pictures, whose other shows include the Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks.

The show follows the fortunes of an ice hockey team and and ice dancing team forced to share the same rink.

There is little information available about the drama so far, but the cast includes Christina Tam, who has previously appeared in Hollyoaks and Transformers: The Last Knight.

One Broomhall resident tweeted how she had received a letter last week saying filming for the show would be taking place there.

Another woman living in Nether Edge responded that she got a letter months ago asking if she would consider letting her house for filming, adding ‘clearly went with boujee S10. S7 too edgy...’.

Filming took place in Parson Cross and elsewhere in Sheffield over the summer for the big screen adaptation, starring Richard E Grant, of the hit Sheffield musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.

That film, about a teenage drag queen and his desire to attend his school prom in a dress, which was inspired by a real-life story, is scheduled for release on October 23 next year.

And Sheffield had a starring role in the last series of Doctor Who, with the Park Hill flats among locations across the city which featured prominently.

The Star has contacted Lime Pictures for more information about Zero Chill.
