Robert Wade and Neal Purvis have been tapped to write the upcoming adaptation of SS-GB for the BBC. Written by Len Deighton, the novel is an alternative history set in a United Kingdom that was conquered and occupied by Germany during World War II. The series, which will focus on a police detective caught between the Nazis and the British resistance, will air over five one-hour episodes. Sid Gentle Films is executive producing with Lee Morris.
Wade and Purvis have written five previous James Bond movies, including The World is Not Enough, Skyfall, and Casino Royale. They are currently doing the latest rewrite of the next installment in the franchise: Bond 24, which is being directed by Sam Mendes.
