The BBC Drama Productions project will be co-produced by BBC America for its Dramaville block.

In the UK, it will air on BBC Four, though no date is yet set. BBC Worldwide is distributing internationally. Jessica Pope exec produces and Lachlan McKinnon is producer with Richard Laxton directing from a screenplay by Made In Dagenham‘s William Ivory.
