Newspaper drama eyes autumn shoot

NewspapersMajor new BBC One drama Press is currently eyeing an early autumn start to filming with the lengthy shoot due to run for four months. 

Set against the backdrop of modern newspapers, the 6 x 60 comes from Doctor Foster creator Mike Bartlett along with Lookout Point, BBC Cymru Wales, Deep Indigo Productions and PBS Masterpiece. 

At the time of the commission announcement, Bartlett said: “From exposing political corruption to splashing on celebrity scandal, editors and journalists have enormous influence over us, yet recent events have shown there’s high-stakes and life-changing drama going on in the news organisations themselves.”
