La BBC vient d'annoncer de nouveaux projets de séries pour l'année prochaine. Voici un petit aperçu de ce qui nous attend :
Midsummer Night’s Dream BBC announced Russell T. Davies’s adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a truthful version of the original play that will star Maxine Peake as Titania, Matt Lucas as Bottom, John Hannah as Theseus, Eleanor Matsuura as Hippolyta and newcomer Hiran Abeysekera as Puck.
Troy — Fall Of A City David Farr’s visceral multi-part series retelling the fall of Troy and the collapse of a family. The story of the war between Greece and Troy is an epic tale of love, revenge, intrigue and bloodshed. Told from the perspective of the Trojan family at the heart of the siege, Farr’s psychologically rich and sweeping narrative goes back to the saga’s origins: to the judgment of Paris, his passionate elopement with Helen, and the ill-starred prophecy surrounding his birth. Thrilling and heart-breakingly intimate, is set to convey the big themes of human existence, horror and heroism, of people battling to retain their humanity and compassion amid the chaos, devastation and destruction of war.
To Sir With Love Set in the bomb-damaged East End of London in the aftermath of World War II, Guyanese engineer Ricky Braithwaite is de-mobbed from the RAF to find a cold welcome in a Britain which has turned its back on the black men and women who had fought alongside them in the war. Taking a job as a teacher at an unconventional ‘free’ school in the East End, Ricky faces a class of unruly white working class kids who test him to his limits. But in the space of one year, their lives are transformed under his guidance, and his own future is turned upside down when he falls in love with a white fellow-teacher. In a story that counters prejudice with personal dignity and hope, To Sir With Love celebrates the transformational power of education in the face of racial prejudice. Powerfully resonant of 1950s London, the themes are just as relevant today.
The Cormoran Strike Mysteries Based on Robert Galbraith’s best-selling novels The Cuckoo’s Calling and The Silkworm, and the highly anticipated Career Of Evil, due for publication this autumn, this bold series from a master storyteller will bring one of the most memorable detective duos of modern times to BBC One. Steeped in the atmosphere of contemporary London, Cormoran Strike’s city is far from the bright lights and frenetic bustle, immersed instead in its darker, murkier side. War veteran turned private detective, Strike investigates shocking crimes together with his female assistant Robin, whose forensic mind and fierce determination he cannot ignore. The murders take them from the hushed streets of Mayfair to the literary haunts of Fitzrovia, exposing the seedy reality lurking beneath seemingly innocent societies. With each crime, they discover a little more about each other and both learn that appearances can be deceptive.
The Last Post Aden, 1965. The fag-end of empire. Based on Peter Moffat’s childhood memories, his father’s life as an officer in the Royal Military Police and his mother’s struggle between being what the army required her to be and what she felt like being, this is the story of a British army unit fighting a terrorist insurgency in the Middle East and the women and children who were there with them. Danger, heat, glamour - grenade attacks, roadside mines, sniper actions, gin and tonic, polka dot bikinis and fish and chips at the BP beach club, Strangers In The Night, death in the desert, drinking and smoking like there’s no tomorrow, frying eggs on the bonnets of Land Rovers, the politics of occupier and occupied, love and war a long way from home. The series is an up-close look at soldiering and police work, but it’s as much about the pressures and excitements of being married to the British army in a dangerous place at a moment in history when sex and feminism arrive in the 20th century - the sun is going down on the empire and the established order of the 1950s is disappearing.
Rush Of Blood Three couples return from their holiday together in Florida and realise that one of them must have been responsible for a murder.
