PBS is taking on the news. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network is teaming up with the BBC for a new series titled Press.
From Mike Bartlett, the six-part drama will “explore the turbulent media landscape through the fortunes of competing broadsheet and tabloid papers and the very different and colorful characters who work for them.”
PBS will co-produce Press with BBC Studios, Deep Indigo, and Lookout Point.
From producer Nigel Stafford-Clark:
At a time when both the nature and the role of the press have themselves become part of the news, there’s never been a better moment to focus on this unique world as the basis of a major television series. And I can’t think of anyone better to take that on than Mike Bartlett.”
