ITV orders adaptation of Our House
ITV has greenlit an adaptation of Louise Candlish’s novel, Our House, from Red Planet Pictures, with filming set for next summer.
The four-part drama will be adapted by screenwriter Simon Ashdown and produced by Red Planet Pictures, with joint managing director, Belinda Campbell, as executive producer.
Our House narrates the story of Fiona Lawson who arrives home one day to find strangers moving into her house. With all her family’s possessions and furniture nowhere to be seen, Fi believes there’s been a huge mistake and insists her home isn’t for sale.
As events spiral beyond her control, her panic rises as she can’t reach her estranged husband, Bram…
Our House became a Sunday Time best seller and Book of the Year – Crime and Thriller, at the British Book Awards in 2019.
Candlish said: “Some of the most addictive drama I’ve watched in recent years has come from ITV, so it’s an honour and a career highlight to have an adaptation of Our House join such prestigious company. The way Simon and the Red Planet Pictures team have brought Fi and Bram’s hair-raising story to life is absolute genius.”
