Bobby Moore biopic from ITV

A dramatisation of Tina Moore’s memoir about her life with the legendary footballer Bobby Moore is to become a three-part drama for ITV.Bobby MOore

Kieran Roberts of ITV Studios Manchester is the exec producer heading up Tina and Bobby, with Spencer Campbell in place to produce.

EastEnders and Holby City scribe Lauren Klee is writing the drama. 

The three x 60 is an adaptation of Bobby Moore: By The Person Who Knew Him Best. It tells the story of their lives together from the early years as childhood sweethearts, set against the backdrop of Bobby’s glittering career on the pitch as he went on to become a national treasure. 

Roberts said of the commission: “Most people will know the story of Bobby Moore’s achievements as captain of club and country – the only Englishman ever to lift the football World Cup. 

“Far fewer will know the story of his life with Tina – a love story every bit as dramatic and epic as Bobby’s exploits on the pitch. We are thrilled to be dramatising Tina and Bobby’s amazing story for ITV.”

Filming on Tina and Bobby begins in the summer in Manchester; PI subscribers should follow the project on our site from 3 March where they will also find details of the casting director attached. We will update with more crucial hires as they board.
