BBC One Orders New Drama Series ‘Life’ From ‘Doctor Foster’ Creator Mike Bartlett

The BBC is getting back into business with Mike Bartlett. BBC One has given the green-light to Life, a new six episode drama series from the writer behind Doctor Foster and Trauma. Life explores four separate, deeply human and surprising stories to tell a larger story about what happens when we decide to step out of our own personal space and take a closer look into other people’s lives. The series unfolds in a large divided house in Manchester and will take a look into each of the flats and at the belief in the human capacity to connect, to care, to love and to change.
