ITV arrives at Platform 7 with adaptation of Louise Doughty thriller novel

UK commercial broadcaster ITV has commissioned a drama adaptation of Louise Doughty’s psychological thriller novel Platform 7.

Polly Hill

Dancing Ledge Productions (The Responder, The Salisbury Poisonings) is working on the 4×60’ series which is being adapted by screenwriter Paula Milne (Him, The Politician’s Husband, White Heat).

It will premiere on ITV’s soon-to-launch streaming service ITVX months before its linear premiere on the main channel.

The drama is a haunting thriller following central character Lisa, who, after witnessing a cataclysmic event at a railway station, finds her own fragmented memory jogged to reveal a connection between her own life and that of the event she has just witnessed.

Head of drama Polly Hill will oversee production of the drama for ITV. Other recent television adaptations of Doughty’s work include Apple Tree Yard and Crossfire, which is also produced by Dancing Ledge Productions.

Platform 7 goes into production later this year. Details of casting will be released at a later date and Fremantle will handle international distribution.
