BBC One has ordered Inside Man, a new series from Steven Moffatt.
The Bafta and Emmy award-winning writer of Doctor Who and Sherlock may have ended his tenure in the TARDIS but remains at the top of the Beeb’s list for talent: he and fellow Sherlock creator Mark Gatiss are currently in production on Dracula, a new series that’s co-produced by BBC One and Netflix. Now, BBC One has revealed that it’s already got another Moffat joint in the pipeline.
Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content and Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, announced the commission at Edinburgh TV Festival. Inside Man is a brand new original crime thriller. The four-part mini-series produced by Hartswood Films follows a prisoner on death row in the US and a woman trapped in a cellar under an English vicarage, who cross paths in the most unexpected way…
Wenger says: “In our ongoing relationship with Steven and Sue (Vertue), they sent us this mini-series which Steven had written on spec and we commissioned it instantly. The script is a page-turner and grips you from the outset, and Charlotte and I couldn’t resist bringing this story to BBC One.”
The drama will go into production in late 2020.
