We’re directing a new drama for BBC1, written by Mike Bartlett.

Our cast includes Alison Steadman, Peter Davison, Adrian Lester, Victoria Hamilton, Rachael Stirling, Saira Choudhry, Susannah Fielding, Buffy Davis, Kate Ashfield, Geoffrey Streatfield and Elaine Paige.

The series follows the stories of the residents of a large house in Manchester, divided into four flats.

As each of the four separate strands unfolds, in relatable yet surprising ways, they tell a larger story about what happens when we step out of our personal space and take a closer look into other people’s lives. LIFE explores love, loss, birth, death, the ordinary, the extraordinary and everything in between.Produced by Kate Crowther and Drama Republic.
