Sitting in Limbo gears up for filming
BBC One feature-length drama Sitting in Limbo is gearing up to film towards the end of November.
The one-off piece is from Left Bank Pictures and writer Stephen S Thompson, marking his first screenplay for television.
The project is set in 2016 and centres on the true story of Thompson’s brother Anthony Bryan and his personal struggle to be accepted as a British Citizen during the Windrush immigration scandal.
The executive producer for the BBC is Mona Qureshi alongside Lila Rawlings and Andy Harries for Left Bank Pictures.
Rawlings said of the commission: “This will be a drama about our modern Britain and is - in many ways - a precursor to where we find ourselves today.
"The BBC has supported and championed our work on the project from the very first meeting, and we believe it’s the perfect home for the show.”
