A TV series based on this year’s Oscar nominated “Brooklyn”, starring Saoirse Ronan Emory Cohen in the lead, is currently in development at BBC’s drama department.
The series will centre on the boarding house for young women run by Mrs Keogh (Julie Walter), populated by a mixture of Irish, English, and Americal individuals.
“I suggested the idea to Colm quite early on, before there was even a first draft for the film. We’re talking to writers now and have a couple in our sights,” producer Finola Dwyer said.
There is no word yet on whether Ronan would appear, even for a cameo role; though it’s unlikely considering the film has boosted her profile thanks to her Academy Award nomination for best actress.
