‘Wolf Hall’ Team Reunite for Cyber Warfare Series ‘The Undeclared War’

Peter Kosminky and Colin Callender’s Playground Entertainment are working on “The Undeclared War,” a new drama being developed for U.K. broadcaster Channel 4 and set against the backdrop of cyber warfare between nations.

Kosminsky is one of Britain’s top TV scribes and directors. He directed the TV adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s “Wolf Hall,” which starred Damian Lewis, Mark Rylance, and Claire Foy. It was written by Peter Straughan. Playground produced the award-winning period drama, which was a hit for the BBC in the U.K. and Masterpiece in the U.S.

Kosminsky and Playground are now teaming up again for “The Undeclared War,” which will focus on an undeclared cyber confrontation in a present-day Cold War.

Kosminsky will pen the first three installments and and the final episode of the 10-part series. The six-time BAFTA winner tackled contemporary themes in his last project, ISIS drama “The State,” for Channel 4 and National Geographic, and is known for his exhaustive research methods.

Beth Willis, head of drama,  is overseeing the project for Channel 4. Kosminsky, along with Playground’s Callender and Sophie Gardiner, will executive produce the show, which is designed as a returning series.
