“Foyle’s War” Creator To Pen New Crime Series
Writer Anthony Horowitz is scripting New Blood – a crime-thriller for the BBC.
The show revolves around two investigators who are suddenly brought together by two seemingly unrelated cases.
Hoping that New Blood reflects his long time desire to add a brand new slant to crime drama, Horowitz says the show is about the Y Generation, young people starting out in their careers, and pits the powerless against the powerful.
The writer also believes that 21st century London is the perfect setting for the seven-part series, due to run on BBC 1 later this year, about two twenty-something characters.
Horowitz is also creator of Foyle’s War, in which Michael Kitchen’s Christopher Foyle, a senior intelligence officer for MI5, fights crime on England’s South Coast during World War 11 and the Cold War. Earlier this year, Horowitz said that the series, which has aired for more than twelve years, has run its course.
Horowitz’s other writing credits include Robin of Sherwood, Midsomer Murders and a series of young adult novels revolving around Alex Rider – a teenager who becomes a spy for the British secret service after learning that his uncle, believed to have been killed in a car crash, was actually assassinated.
