Maxine Peake drama Rules of the Game arrived on BBC One this week, with the actress proving herself once again as one of the best performers working in TV.

It’s one of the most intriguing new shows to get stuck into this January, and a timely one too with the show inspired by the #MeToo movement.

The set up sees a body found in the reception of a northern sportswear company. Maxine’s character Sam is then called upon by police to recount the events that lead to the incident.

It also follows a new HR director as they take on the uphill struggle of tackling the insidious lad culture in the office.

The series takes a look at sexual politics in the workplace, following the events that lead up to the suspicious death.

But where is it filmed? Here’s everything you need to know.

Most of the action takes place in the fictional sportswear company run by Maxine’s character Sam.

Filming for these scenes took place at the Fujitsu building, which can be found in One Central Park in Manchester.

Elsewhere, the scenes set in Sam’s house were filmed in Eccles, Salford.

Maxine leads the cast, although the likes of Sex Education star Rakhee Thakrar, Enola Holmes actress Susan Wokoma and Gavin and Stacey’s Alison Steadman and Enola Holmes star Susan Wokoma also appear in the drama.

Writer Ruth Fowler previously spoke about the inspiration behind the series, saying: ‘When we conceived this show it was during the Weinstein scandal, and I was concerned it might have dated in the interim.

‘How sadly wrong I was, and I’m honoured the BBC and everyone else championing this story did not let it fade away as its relevance has become even more acute.

‘Many women’s experiences (including my own) inspired this fictional show – with the added benefit that in the retelling no women were harmed, maimed or exposed to Harvey.

‘I’m delighted the brave, wonderful and tenacious Maxine Peake is on board to help tell this story.’

Rules of the Game is available to stream on BBC iPlayer
