Sky promises more homegrown drama

Sky director of programmes Richard Woolfe has bolstered his commitment to original drama, promising more big budget shows on the broadcaster next year.

This year it will air a high definition adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s Hogfather, starring David Jason, Tony Robinson and Nigel Planer and Woolfe is keen to build on this. Producers have optioned the rights on three more books in the Discworld series, including The Colour of Magic, the first in the fantasy franchise. Hogfather is being broadcast this month and it is highly likely that more productions will begin development next year.
