BBC One tells Ordinary Lies

UK public broadcaster BBC One has ordered a new six-part drama about the staff of a car showroom.



Ordinary Lies, written by Danny Brocklehurst, follows a group of characters dealing with everyday dilemmas and what happens when the lies people tell spin out of control.

It is produced by Red Production Company and the executive producer is Nicola Shindler.

BBC One has also ordered a one-off film adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic story Esio Trot.

Dustin Hoffman will star as Mr Hoppy, a retired bachelor who harbours a secret passion for his neighbour, Mrs Silver, to be played by Judi Dench.

Dahl’s novel will be adapted by Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer for Endor Productions. Hilary Bevan Jones is the producer and Dearbhla Walsh is directing.

Red Arrow International will hold distribution rights to Esio Trot.
