Steve McQueen To Make BBC Drama Titled “Exploding The Black Experience In Britain”

According to the London Daily Mail, director Steve McQueen is planning on a BBC Drama titled “Exploding the Black Experience in Britain”

McQueen told the paper that he will soon start working on his plans, but unfortunately there were no hints on the cast but the paper reported that the series is said to be shooting in West London were McQueen was born.

He also said that the series will be “epic in scope,” and will chronicle the lives of a group of friends and their families from 1968 to 2014.

He further continued that he will spend most of this year developing it, sharing that he was inspired to do the series since “I don’t think there has been a serious drama series in Britain with black people from all walks of life as the main protagonists.”

With 12 Years A Slave almost totally behind him, the director is already busy with a project set up at HBO, with World War Z co-writer Matthew Michael Carnahan, as well as Russell Simmons, and the Oscar-winning producers of The King’s Speech, Iain Canning and Emile Sherman. Details are currently sparse on the drama project, but it’s being described as “an exploration of a young African American man’s experience entering New York high society, with a past that may not be what it seems.”
