Sean Bean and Nicola Walker are teaming up for Marriage and new images give us a first look at the BBC One drama.
Produced by The Forge (Help, Roadkill, National Treasure) and The Money Men, the four-part series sees married couple Ian (Bean) and Emma (Walker) negotiate the ups and downs of their 30-year marriage. We see them dealing with the insecurities, the ambiguities, the hopes and the fears that are part of all marriages, as the drama explores the risks and the gifts of a long-term intimate relationship.
The series is written and directed by Stefan Golaszewski (Him & Her, Mum) and will co-star James Bolam (New Tricks, The Likely Lads) as Gerry, Emma’s father, Henry Lloyd-Hughes (The Inbetweeners, Ragdoll) as Jamie, Emma’s boss, and Chantelle Alle (We Are Lady Parts, Mood) as Jessica, Ian and Emma’s daughter.
The series is co-produced by The Money Men and was commissioned by Piers Wenger, Director of BBC Drama, and Charlotte Moore, Chief Content Officer. The executive producers are Tommy Bulfin for the BBC, Beth Willis and George Faber for The Forge and Richard Laxton and Stefan Golaszewski for The Money Men. The producer is Lyndsay Robinson (Him And Her, Mum). The show is produced in association with All3Media International who represent the drama globally.
Filming has completed and Marriage will air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer later this year.
