The duo has teamed up with Academy Award-nominated writer Shane Connaughton (My Left Foot) on The Family Shakespeare.

The drama will follow the story of arguably the world’s most successful writer and the conflict between his family life in Stratford-upon-Avon and flourishing career in London.

The miniseries is the second project for Théroux announced since his departure from eOne, where he ran the company’s film division.

Bristow and Théroux, as well as John Rhys-Davies and Agnes Bristow, are all exec producers on the drama, which will be produced by Canada’s Leif Films.
