Hat Trick Productions has optioned the rights to historian and novelist Simon Sebag Montefiore’s Russian thriller One Night In Winter, with plans to develop it into a TV series. One Night In Winter is set just after the Second World War. As Stalin and his courtiers celebrate victory over Hitler, shots ring out. On a nearby bridge, a teenage boy and girl lie dead. But this is no ordinary tragedy and these are no ordinary teenagers, but the children of Russia’s most important leaders who attend the most exclusive school in Moscow. Is it murder? A suicide pact? Or a conspiracy against the state?
