BBC One orders ‘Ordinary Lies’ drama by ‘Shameless’ writer

Posted Filed under

Written by Danny Brocklehurst (The Street, Shameless), Ordinary Lies is set in a car showroom and focuses on “a group of compelling characters all dealing with every day dilemmas and what happens when the lies people tell to keep their heads above water spin out of control with sometimes tragic, sometimes funny consequences”.

Speaking at the Edinburgh Television Festival, new BBC One controller Charlotte Moore commented: “Danny Brocklehurst is one of our most talented storytellers and a master at making the ordinary cross over into the extraordinary. Set in the colourful and competitive world of car sales, Ordinary Lies is full of surprising twists and turns, a roller coaster of a ride for our audience.”
