SundanceTV has boarded upcoming BBC One legal drama The Split, where it will air in the US, instantly boosting its reach and Season 2 renewal odds. Variety reports:
SundanceTV is partnering with BBC One for new drama “The Split,” the network announced today at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
“The Split” comes from Emmy-winning writer Abi Morgan (“The Hour”). The drama examines the fast-paced world of high-powered female divorce lawyers through the lens of three sisters — rivals Hannah and Nina, and youngest sibling Rose — whose lives are upended by the return of their father Oscar after a 30-year absence.
Following its run on SundanceTV, sibling subscription service Sundance Now will capture exclusive US streaming rights for the series.
Stay tuned as we monitor the survival status of The Split Series/Season 2…
