BBC One commissions nursing drama ‘Frankie’

Posted Filed under

Created and written by Lucy Gannon (Soldier Soldier), the “modern and redemptive” series is “about ordinary lives which are often in huge domestic crisis”.

The official synopsis reads: “Our heroine, Frankie, is a heroine for the modern age who looks life and death in the eye; her mission is to make a difference.”

Kate Harwood, Controller, Drama Series & Serials, describes Frankie as “a warm and authored new show, from the doyenne of returning drama series”.

Other new commissions for BBC One include The Musketeers, a “fresh and contemporary take on the classic characters created by Alexandre Dumas” from the creator of Primeval, and one-off drama The Lady Vanishes.

Danny Cohen, Controller, BBC One, commented: “These new BBC One commissions from drama present a richly ambitious slate that will thrill, move and delight audiences.”
