Royal Kill List

VO Recording With Hollywood Legend Jared Harris for new Sky series

Words by Ryan Stephenson, Sunday 17 Mar 2024


We recently had the pleasure of recording voiceover for Sky’s brand new documentary series, Royal Kill List, with none other than Hollywood legend Jared Harris.  

Produced by 72 films (John Lennon: Murder Without Trial / JFK One Day In America / House of Kardashian), the three part series, narrated by the star studded cast of Harris, Joseph Fiennes and Sheila Atim, explores the historical events preceding the first British civil war and the bloodthirsty revenge of King Charles II on his return to the throne.

Having three narrators can be logistically complex. However, with careful and thorough planning in collaboration with the production team at 72 films, we ironed out a razored workflow that kept everything on rails. Line numbers, time codes, sync pops and navigation markers are critical when recording voiceover to picture, allowing talent to rattle through their scripts seamlessly.

Of course, having a Hollywood legend in the hotseat helps to expedite the process even further!

Royal Kill List is available to stream now on demand, on Sky History. Go give it a watch!
