Mrs Wilson producers to make ITV drama
The company behind period drama Mrs Wilson is working on Too Close, a new drama for ITV starring Emily Watson.
Snowed-In Productions is working with writer Clara Salaman and all3media international on the three-part series that is adapted from a novel by Salaman writing as Natalie Daniels.
The psychological thriller centres on Watson’s forensic psychiatrist who is assigned to work with a woman accused of committing a dreadful crime but who claims she can't remember anything.
Snowed-In Productions is a sister company of Bronte Film and Television (which produces JK Rowling projects) with a remit of making non-Rowling dramas such as Mrs Wilson.
Snowed-In’s head of drama Ruth Kenley-Letts said of the project: “Working with Clara Salaman on this adaption of her novel has been a joy.
"She is a bright new talent to screenwriting and it is a testament to her writing that Emily Watson, one of our finest and most accomplished actors, has signed up to play the part of ‘Emma’.”
