A TV series that features a Darwen home is set to hit the small screen in the new year.

It's A Sin, which explores the Aids epidemic in the 1980s, will appear on Channel 4.

A one-minute trailer has been released by the broadcaster, featuring prominent scenes and showing the characters that the series will follow.

The show tells the story of three gay teenage boys who start a new life in London and follows their journey through rejection, prejudice, and the AIDS epidemic.

Olly Alexander, lead singer from the band Years & Years, and newcomers Omari Douglas and Callum Scott Howells play the three boys, Ritchie, Roscoe, and Colin.

Crews for the show, originally titled Boys, filmed at a house on Joseph Street in Darwen last year.

Lancashire Telegraph:

Location scouts had been touring the estate beyond St Peter’s Church in the town for some time before making the decision.

Le Mans Crescent in Bolton, which is very popular among filmmakers, also features in the series.

In October 2019, The street was transformed to look like London in the 1980s for the series.

More than 20 people were filmed for the scene in the town centre last year, with protesters coming off a bus and pulling signs from the back of a car.

People were also spotted with white t-shirts reading "AIDS needs aid!"

Signs with “fight AIDS not gays”, “RIP killed by the system” and “Blood on your hands blazenhensher” were all spotted.

Parts of the protest scene are included in the TV series' trailer.

The series also stars Stephen Fry, Neil Patrick Harris, and Keeley Hawes.

The series' creator, Russell T Davies, is no stranger to exploring gay themes after introducing hit series Queer as Folk to audiences.

The famous writer said it will be appearing on Channel 4 for the first time on Friday, January 22.
