Bedlam announce first TV drama series
Bedlam have joined forces with New Zealand-based South Pacific Pictures to develop their first television drama series, Spitfire Girls.
The drama will focus on the lives of the women of the Air Transport Auxiliary, a brave band of sisters who, during WWII, flew new aircraft from factories to airfields, or took badly damaged planes back the other way. They often risked their lives and lost many loved ones, but their bravery and camaraderie overcame prejudice to forge a new breed of woman.
The series will be produced by Bedlam's Gareth Unwin alongside Liz Trubridge, best known for the hugely successful series Downton Abbey, and John Barnett of South Pacific Pictures. More details will follow.
