Drama Republic preps Us for summer shoot
An adaptation of David Nicholls’ 2014 novel, Us, is in pre-production at Drama Republic for BBC One.
The book follows Douglas and Connie Petersen, a couple whose marriage is on the edge.
When they go on a tour of European cities, Douglas views it as a last-ditch attempt to win back his wife as well as a chance to repair the troubled relationship he has with his teenage son.
Nick Payne has written the 4 x 60 drama; author Nicholls (pictured) is among the team of executive producers.
Drama Republic is also in pre-production on LIFE, a story set in a large house in Manchester that comes from writer Mike Bartlett, who wrote two series of the hit drama Doctor Foster for the indie.
