The Split: first trailer for BBC’s terrific-looking new drama

Writer Abi Morgan already has some terrific projects to her name, including the TV show The Hour, and films such as Shame and Suffragette. Next up for her is a major new BBC drama called The Split.

It stars Nicola Walker, Meera Syal, Stephen Mangan and Deborah Findlay, and follows a family of female divorce lawyers, who each have to face the return of their father after a decades-long absence.

When we get a start date, we’ll let you know.
