Cupar business provides props for new show Jude Law TV show

Cupar vintage specialist Scaramanga is celebrating its products being seen for the first time on a global network TV drama.

Innovative new show, The Third Day, starring Jude Law, Emily Watson and Naomie Harris, premiered on HBO on Monday and Sky Atlantic and NOW TV on Tuesday.

It “chronicles the individual journeys of a man and woman who arrive on a mysterious island at different times” and allows viewers to follow the events of a single day in real time.

The show is unique in that, as well as pre-recorded, scripted episodes, it will include a live broadcast of a theatrical event on Sky Arts and online planned for October 3.

Vintage interiors and leather bags firm Scaramanga supplied an extra-large iron antique padlock and a large iron to one to the show’s props buyer in August last year for filming, which took place in the UK. They are now being seen by a global audience.

Speaking about the firm’s first global network TV supply role, Scaramanga founder and managing director Carl Morenikeji said: “While our reputation as vintage specialists has seen our products used in 12 Hollywood and major UK movies to date, as well many UK network TV shows, this is the first time they’ve been aired on TV around the globe. We’re natural delighted.

“Better still, another three US network-made shows have bought Scaramanga products for props use and these will air next year as most are still being filmed. We’re hoping this will drive interest in our brand Stateside and in other places the shows are aired.”

The company, which also sells its bags, vintage furniture and homewares online, has previously been used as a supplier of vintage and antique props for UK TV shows including Strictly Come Dancing, Peaky Blinders and The Crystal Maze.
