Pre-production is underway on MotherFatherSon, an eight-part drama for BBC Two from screenwriter Tom Rob Smith (pictured), whose credits include London Spy, American Crime Story and Child 44.
The major 8 x 60 series is set in London and is described by executive producer Hilary Salmon as an “ambitious and timely political thriller with an emotionally enthralling family at its heart.”
Alan Poul, who worked on shows including Six Feet Under and The Newsroom, will produce the drama for BBC Studios.
