Us is commissioned for BBC One


Drama Republic is thrilled to be producing an adaptation of David Nicholl’s acclaimed novel Us for BBC One. The multi-part adaptation will be scripted by award-winning playwright and screenwriter Nick Payne.

The bestselling book tells the story of Douglas and Connie Petersen, a couple whose marriage is on the rocks. When they go on a family grand tour of European cities, Douglas sees it as a last bid to win back the love of his wife, and repair his troubled relationship with his son.

Us will bring the Petersens’ poignant and often hilarious story to life, taking the audience with them on their once-in-a-lifetime trip across Europe.
