BBC Two Orders Oscar Wilde Documentary Featuring Stephen Fry, Freddie Fox, Anna Chancellor & More

BBC Two has ordered The Importance Of Being Oscar, an eighty minute documentary exploring the work of Oscar Wilde from the Banijay owned indie IWC. The one-off documentary is something of a hybrid production featuring both standard documentary elements as well as performances of Wilde's greatest works. A range of experts, enthusiasts and biographers - including Stephen Fry, Wilde’s grandson Merlin Holland, and his latest biographer Matthew Sturgis - will explore Wilde’s glittering and at times, scandalous career, which would inform his work, and his subsequent disgraced exit from high society. Freddie Fox, Claire Skinner, Anna Chancellor and James Fleet are all set to star in performances in the one-off.
