New drama from Doctor Foster indie

Drama Republic, the indie behind two series of ratings hit Doctor Foster, is in development on a new comedy drama for Channel 4 due to shoot next year.

Pure has been adapted as a 6 x 60 by Kirstie Swain (Clique) from Rose Bretecher’s book.

It centres on 22-year-old graduate Marnie as she travels impulsively from Scotland to London to find herself and cope with an extreme form of obsessive compulsive disorder that gives her graphic sexual thoughts.

Drama Republic’s Roanna Benn and Greg Brenman are executive producers working alongside producer Jen Kenwood.

Shoot dates are listed on PI along with the name of the co-producer. We will be updating with more names over the coming weeks so subscribers should follow the project to receive email alerts.
