Zero Chill, a 10-part teen drama revolving around the tensions between a talented ice hockey player and his twin sister, who is a gifted figure skater, is being shot now and is due to air towards the end of the year.

Part of the iceSheffield arena has been transformed into the fictional Hammerstrom Ice Hockey Academy for the serial, and real-life skaters there have been given the opportunity to get involved.

A spokesman for the makers said: “We are working with local skaters, utilising them as doubles for figure skating and ice hockey as well supporting artists.”
