BBCA goes to McGovern

Net nabs 'Street,' 'Cracker'

BBC America has snapped up two new dramas from Brit scribe Jimmy McGovern.

“The Street” is a kitchen-sink drama set in the north of England, with each seg focusing on a different house on the same street. Ensemble cast includes Timothy Spall, Jim Broadbent, Jane Horrocks and Sue Johnston. Show is produced by Ken Horn and helmed by David Blair and Terry McDonough.

BBC America also has picked up a feature-length episode of hit Brit skein “Cracker,” in which Robbie Coltrane reprises his role as the deadbeat criminal psychologist “Fitz” Fitzgerald. Episode is directed by Antonia Bird and produced by John Chapman for ITV Prods.

McGovern is known in Blighty for his gritty, challenging scripts, with credits including “Priest,” “Liam” and soccer-disaster skein “Hillsborough.”
