Wanderlust plans Manchester filming
Doctor Foster indie Drama Republic is now in pre-production with a new BBC One drama that will film in Manchester.
Wanderlust is an exploration of the relationships within multiple generations of a family, and asks whether lifelong monogamy is possible - or even desirable. It is the first TV series by award-winning playwright Nick Payne.
