BBC One controller Dany Cohen made a statement yesterday about what to expect & achieve in 2012. In this context he mentioned new drama incl. Prisoners’ Wives.


At the heart of this will be a major refreshment of BBC One’s Drama offering in 2012, with over twenty new drama commissions slated to transmit.

This is an unprecedented injection of fresh energy and creativity in to BBC One’s drama output, and reflects Ben Stephenson and my desire to offer audiences the most vibrant and original home-grown drama in Britain.

You can see clips from some of these new dramas alongside this blog. I hope they reflect the potent mix of contemporary and period pieces we have to offer in the coming months – from the beautifully delivered and emotionally compelling Call The Midwife and Birdsong, to the modern-day energy of The Syndicate, Prisoners’ Wives and Inside Men.
