Tenacity Adaptation in Development for ITV

-

ITV’s Head of Drama, Polly Hill, has commissioned the high octane, six-part thriller television series Tenacity from Bad Wolf in partnership with Entertainment One. Inspired by J.S. Law’s novel of the same name, the series is created and written by Peter A. Dowling, whose credits including Flightplan and Reasonable Doubt.

In the story, when a dead submariner is discovered aboard the British nuclear submarine, Tenacity, disgraced military detective Danielle ‘Dan’ Lewis is sent to investigate the accident. But when the case turns to murder it puts her in conflict with Tenacity’s crew, her Navy superiors, and into the crosshairs of an assassin who has infiltrated her nuclear base with an agenda that will not only destroy national security but kill Dan and everyone she loves.

Commented Polly Hill: “Peter has written an incredible script with a brilliant and complex heroine leading an investigation that genuinely surprises. I am so delighted to be working with Bad Wolf and Entertainment One on this incredible drama, that promises to have an audience hooked from the start. We are excited to have this on ITV and think it will be addictive viewing.”

Peter A. Dowling added: “I am thrilled to write Tenacity for ITV. Their ambition and enthusiasm for the project is hugely exciting and I can’t think of better collaborators to help bring Lieutenant Dan Lewis to life.”

Bad Wolf co-founders Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner (His Dark Materials, A Discovery of Witches) will executive produce alongside Polly Williams on behalf of Entertainment One.

“Jane Tranter and I are delighted to be reunited with Polly Hill at ITV on our first Bad Wolf project together, alongside partners Entertainment One, and to be collaborating with Peter Dowling, a master of suspense, on his first UK television series,” said Julie Gardner.

Polly Williams, eOne’s Head of Scripted Drama, added: “We couldn’t have better partners on Tenacity than Julie and Bad Wolf as well as Pete whose scripts are brilliant. Producing and developing in the UK is so important to us at eOne and we love that this show combines a British perspective and voice with global reach and ambition.”

Tenacity will begin filming in 2020 with further key production and casting roles confirmed closer to production.
