Based on Diane Setterfield's novel, The Thirteenth Tale follows ageing novelist Vida Winter (Redgrave), who enlists Margaret (Colman) to tell the story of her life, including her mysterious childhood at Angelfield House.
"I was delighted to take on Ms Setterfield's ingenious mystery," said Hampton. "It's been a great pleasure re-engaging with the brave new world of 21st century television drama. I may have to come back for more."
Filming is scheduled to begin in June and The Thirteenth Tale will be shown on BBC Two later this year.
