Do you remember the 2005 Jodie Foster film Flightplan? That was way back when films like Batman Begins, Sin City, and Madagascar were released. Seems like ages ago, doesn’t it? Well the writer of Flightplan, Peter A. Dowling has just shifted gears to the TV screen. He has scribed a six-part submarine drama titled Tenacity.
Filming for Tenacity is slated to start in 2020. Once completed the six-part series will air on ITV. The series is a first for ITV as it marks the first large drama production for eOne. ITV’s Head of Drama Polly Hill commented on the script by Peter A. Dowling saying:
“Peter has written an incredible script with a brilliant and complex heroine leading an investigation that genuinely surprises. I am so delighted to be working with Bad Wolf and Entertainment One on this incredible drama, that promises to have an audience hooked from the start. We are excited to have this on ITV and think it will be addictive viewing.”
Dowling added: “I am thrilled to write Tenacity for ITV. Their ambition and enthusiasm for the project is hugely exciting and I can’t think of better collaborators to help bring Lieutenant Dan Lewis to life.”
Tenacity is an adaptation of the J.S. Law Novel. The six-part series is as follows. When a dead submariner is discovered aboard the British nuclear submarine, Tenacity, disgraced military detective Danielle ‘Dan’ Lewis is sent to investigate the accident. But when the case turns to murder it puts her in conflict with Tenacity’s crew, her Navy superiors, and into the crosshairs of an assassin who has infiltrated her nuclear base with an agenda that will not only destroy national security but kill Dan and everyone she loves.
