New Jimmy McGovern drama for BBC Daytime

Liam Keelan, Controller, BBC Daytime, has commissioned a brand new drama series from award-winning writer Jimmy McGovern (The Street, Priest and The Lakes).


Moving On (working title) is a 5 x 45-minute series and will be stripped across one week on BBC One next year.


Each episode takes place in a house and involves a family or individual moving in or out.


Through telling these stories, Moving On will also explore contemporary issues facing Britain.


Liam Keelan says: "I want BBC Daytime to be topical and to grab people's attention, so a drama from someone of Jimmy's calibre and credibility fits the bill perfectly."


Jimmy McGovern says: "Our aim is to produce riveting drama to an extremely high standard.


"Part of the attraction is that we'll be making the programmes in Liverpool, our home town, a city full of talent. I can't wait to get started."


Moving On (working title) is an LA Productions production for BBC Daytime.


The Commissioning Editor and Executive Producer for the BBC is Liam Keelan.


The Executive Producers for LA Productions are Colin McKeown and Jimmy McGovern.
