BBC commissions new Purvis and Wade penned spy series

19-Nov-2014 • Bond News

Head of Drama Ben Stephenson announced a host of new shows it had commissioned this week, among them a new drama from "Skyfall" screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.

The show commissioned, "SS-GB," imagines a Britain occupied by the Nazis after the UK loses the Battle of Britain and is based on the Len Deighton novel of the same name.

The show runners describe the series as "an explosive thriller that will ask: What would you do, faced with stakes as high as this?"

This wont be the first time Deighton's idea has been screened, the book first got a stage adaptation in 1980 and this was followed by a film in 1983, starring Albert Finney and Tom Courtenay.

Thanks to `David` for the alert.
