Born in 1969 in the British capital, artist and filmmaker McQueen is developing a drama from the late 1960s to the present day, marking the artist and filmmaker’s first sojourn into TV drama.
McQueen has enjoyed the backing of Film4, the standalone movie-making arm of Channel 4, for his three features to date: Hunger, Shame and the multiple Golden Globes and BAFTA film awards nominated 12 Years a Slave.
He will move across to BBC Drama to develop and work up the TV show, likely to air on either BBC One or BBC Two.
BBC drama controller Ben Stephenson said: “It is too early to announce the details, but it is incredibly exciting to be working with the hugely talented British director who has rapidly become one of the finest directors in the world.”
The show is being developed with Rainmark Films (Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight).
