The King’s Speech and Top of the Lake producer See-Saw Films has joined Us-based distributor Cohen Media Group (Cmg) to co-develop an international TV series based on Ben Macintyre’s bestselling book Double Cross, about the double agents who kept D-Day a secret from Hitler.
Double Cross tells the true story of the eccentric and brilliant group of spies who were vital to the success of the Normandy landings in June 1944. The daring deception saved thousands of allied soldiers and helped turn the tide of the war.
The project marks Cmg’s first foray into TV drama.
Still at treatment stage, the two companies will attach a writer soon, with Macintyre on board as a consultant.
Shoot dates and locations are yet to be determined but both groups told ScreenDaily they see the project »
