The Secrets (5×30 films) is being made by Working Title Television for the BBC. Each is an explosive story with a secret at the heart of it. Dominic Savage is directing all five episodes, working with four of Britain’s best upcoming writers fresh to television drama.
The strand, which will energise creativity and support new talent, announces the writers as: Elinor Cook, Nick Payne, Ben Ockrent and Sarah Solemani, and confirms BAFTA-winning writer and director Dominic Savage (True Love, Freefall, Dive) will direct all five episodes.
Dominic Savage says: “I am delighted to be part of this new strand which really illustrates what the BBC stands for. Working with new and talented writers along with the best actors the UK has to offer is a real privilege and I can’t wait to get started.”
Nick Payne’s first of two episodes will premier with a stellar cast including; Olivia Colman (The 7.39, Exile, Broadchurch), Alison Steadman (The Syndicate, Gavin & Stacey) and Steve Oram (Sightseers).
Each series takes an inciting incident, and from this starting point, five different stories are told, in five distinctive and original voices.
Episode one by Elinor Cook
Winner of the George Devine Award 2013 for Most Promising Playwright, Elinor recently collaborated on a play with Joe Ward Munrow, and last year was part of Paines Plough’s The Big Room in association with Channel 4.
Elinor Cook’s episode tells the story of a man who is married to two women, and, living a secret double life between them, is exposed. It explores whether monogamy is ever a realistic proposition.
The Secrets, 5×30-minute series, will shoot from Thursday 23 January in London for five weeks and transmit on BBC One later this year.
The Secrets is made by Working Title Television for BBC One. The executive producers are Juliette Howell, Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan for Working Title Television, and Lucy Richer for the BBC. The producer is Guy Heeley.
It was commissioned by Ben Stephenson, Controller, BBC Drama Commissioning and Danny Cohen, BBC Director Television (former Controller BBC One).
Further cast of The Secrets are to be announced.

Jane Garvey is joined by the actors Emilia Fox and Emma Fielding to talk about their roles in a new play about the choices and regrets of a stay at home mum and a successful academic.
US writer Gina Gionfriddo’s play Rapture, Blister, Burn is premiering for the first time in the UK after a successful run in New York last year. It addresses the issue of gender politics and whether women can have it all. The two protagonists, Cathy and Gwen, both in their 40s, have taken different life paths. Cathy, an academic who has remained single, and Gwen, a stay at home mum, both covet each other’s life choices.
Rapture, Blister, Burn is at Hampstead Theatre in London until 22 February
