Wanderlust by Nick Payne is a new six part series, commissioned for BBC One.

The show is a searingly insightful and funny exploration into the relationships of a multi-generational family, looking at how we build and maintain happy relationships and asking whether lifelong monogamy is possible – or even desirable.

This will be the first television series scripted by award-winning playwright Nick Payne, whose brilliant, distinctive plays have earned plaudits from around the world (Constellations, If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet, Elegy).

The commissioning editor for the BBC is Lucy Richer and the executive producers for Drama Republic are Roanna Benn, Jude Liknaitzky and Greg Brenman.
