Details about a new primetime show from Channel 4 based in a school have been announced today, set to air later this year.

QUOTE
Filming has begun on “The ABC” (W/T), heralding Channel 4’s return to 8pm week night drama. The 6x60’ series which is centred on a vibrant and multicultural Yorkshire comprehensive school, began filming on location in Yorkshire earlier this month. Created by Ayub Khan Din (East is East), Kevin Erlis (Shameless) and Malcolm Campbell (Shameless, What Richard Did) it will be directed by Penny Woolcock (Tina Goes Shopping, Mischief Night, The Death of Klinghoffer, 1 Day) and written by Malcolm Campbell, Anya Reiss, Ishy Din, Suhayla el-Bushra and Ayub Khan Din for TX later this year.

Decent cast list Jo Joyner (EastEnders), Sunetra Sarkar (Casualty), Paul Nicholls (The C Word, EastEnders), Amy-Leigh Hickman (The Dumping Ground, EastEnders) and Arshar Ali (The Missing) are all recognisable names involved.

I wonder how similar to Waterloo Road it will be? It seems far more about cultural divide, so hopefully should be more fresh.

Read about this today, definitely looks interesting and hopefully it can be more like the early series of Waterloo Road!
