Abi Morgan drama eyes summer shoot
The latest drama from screenwriter Abi Morgan, The Split, is gearing up for a summer shoot.
Morgan is responsible for such high-profile feature films as Suffragette, The Iron Lady and Shame, and counts River and The Hour among her TV credits.
The series is a 6 x 60 for BBC One, with Jane Featherstone exec producing for her production company Sister Pictures alongside Jessica Hobbs and Lucy Richer.
