Deadline – Here’s a hot one: Killing Eve star Jodie Comer and The Irishman actor Stephen Graham are on the brink of signing up for a Channel 4 drama that will be set in a UK care home during the coronavirus crisis, Deadline can reveal.

[…] Details on the plot are being closely guarded by those involved, but we hear that the action will be set in and around a British care home in 2020. The show was originally called Home, but producers are now rethinking this title.

[…] Thorne, who himself suffered with a suspected bout of coronavirus, has been vocal about conditions in care homes and the lack of personal protective equipment provided to staff and residents. “Care homes for elderly or disabled people seem to be the lowest priority right now,” he tweeted in April after reading about 15 deaths in a Luton care home.

Thorne, a stupendously busy writer who is also behind His Dark Materials and The Aeronauts, has real form in landing powerful and timely dramas for Channel 4 having written National Treasure, Kiri, The Virtues, and The Accident for the UK broadcaster in recent years.

And in casting Comer and Graham, Channel 4 will be uniting two of the UK’s hottest actors. They will also serve as executive producers. The Liverpudlians have great affection for each other, with Comer personally thanking Graham last year after winning a BAFTA for her breakout role in Killing Eve. The pair first worked together in BBC One’s 2012 series Good Cop.
