Grantchester goes to Series 6
ITV has commissioned a sixth run of period drama Grantchester, starring Robson Green and Tom Brittney.
The series is from Kudos and Masterpiece Entertainment, with the earlier stories based on the series of books by James Runcie.
Most scripted dramas currently in the process of getting back up and running are having to tackle a complex tranche of safety protocols, with insurance still being a huge sticking point.
Production Intelligence was the first to report last month that the BBC’s Nancy Mitford adaptation, The Pursuit of Love, starring Lily James, would be the first scripted drama to get back into production, with cameras due to roll at the end of this month.
