NEW DRAMA BASED ON LUCY LETBY REPORTEDLY IN DEVELOPMENT

A new drama based on convicted serial killer Lucy Letby is reportedly in development by Line Of Duty creator Jed Mercurio. Letby was convicted of murdering and harming babies.



The drama, for which no broadcaster is currently attached though The Sun speculates it could be ITV, is being made in partnership with a whistle-blower. It's also not clear whether it will be a series or one-off piece.



A source told The Sun: "Jed sees this as an important story that should not just be chronicled in a drama but also explored. It aims to try to explain how her crimes could have gone on for so long and how others - particularly Dr Jayaram - tried to act when suspicions were raised...


"Bagging a high-profile name to play Letby would help give the show the attention it deserves too, but it’s not a role to take lightly."


More details will be revealed in due course.
