Charlotte Moore unveils BBC One’s distinctive autumn/winter schedule
BBC One Controller, Charlotte Moore, announces bold new commissions in comedy, drama and factual
Charlotte Moore said: “This autumn, BBC One will bring the nation together with a distinctive mix of high-quality programmes that will empower, surprise and inspire audiences. From Abi Morgan’s River to landmark natural history series The Hunt and Great Barrier Reef, original 20-part series Dickensian, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s Waste, to The Night Manager, the epic War And Peace, the Tracey Ullman Show and returning global hits Luther and Sherlock, to name just a few.”
Charlotte Moore concluded: “BBC One’s commitment to ambitious and pioneering television like this is unrivalled. When you see my autumn/winter schedule, I hope you will be blown away by the range, the quality and the extraordinary line-up. It demonstrates a channel that’s distinctive, best in class, and at the top of its game, raising the bar of what British television can offer. We all know BBC One’s remit is to entertain, educate and inform for a mainstream audience. But tonight I want to make three promises. BBC One will be defined in the coming years by its commitment to risk taking. I will guarantee investment in innovation. And I will challenge every new commission to break the mould.”
All drama is commissioned by Charlotte Moore and Polly Hill, Controller BBC Drama.
