Channel 4 is developing a four-part drama inspired by the events of the Operation Yewtree investigation into historic sexual assaults carried out by public figures.
Finchley is a household name and loved by the country when he gets a knock on the door from police, who have a rape accusation against him dating back to the 1970s.

British filmmakers and some of the UK’s highest-profile documentary-makers have put their names to a campaign backing the BBC.
Oscar-winners Tom Hooper, who directed The King’s Speech and Les Misérables, and James Marsh, who was behind Man On Wire and The Theory Of Everything, have endorsed the licence fee and the BBC’s contribution to the UK creative industries.

The board of Directors UK voted unanimously to support the campaign and chief executive Andrew Chowns said: “The BBC should be celebrated as a place that inspires our brightest television talent and empowers them to achieve »
Deadline is reporting that Marc Munden, director of the now-defunct-thank-you-very-much-David-Fincher Channel 4 series Utopia, is in talks with FilmNation to direct a sci-fi script they picked up called Aether. FilmNation picked up the sci-fi screenplay, written by Scottish writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns, last March. Details about the plot were kept under wraps then and they still are now.

Though we are sad that it was cancelled to make way for the American attempt at it (coming soon) we look forward to finding out...

FilmNation has been looking to expand in adult dramas in the independently financed world. It had an impressive trio of highbrow films screening at Berlin: “Knight of Cups,” directed by Terrence Malick; “Life,” from Anton Corbijn; and “Mr. Holmes,” with Bill Condon directing Ian McKellen.
FilmNation sold a one-third stake in the company last year to Village Roadshow, which invested $18 million in FilmNation. The first two »
