ITV has axed Impossible Pictures’ dinosaur drama Primeval [created by Tim Haines and Adrian Hodges] to focus on drama aired after 9pm.

“Our current focus is on post-watershed dramas,” he said, although it is understood that ITV will not rule out commissioning or airing pre-watershed dramas entirely.
