A raft of new content coming to BBC One
They include the return of Line of Duty which moves to BBC One after three hugely popular series.
She also confirmed details of several new dramas.
The first of which is an adaptation of critically acclaimed young adult novel Noughts and Crosses for BBC One
Malorie Blackman’s enthralling story of first love in a dangerous, adrenalized fictional dystopia is to be adapted by Levi David Addai with Matthew Graham produced by Mammoth Screen.
Divided by their colour but united by forbidden love and burning injustice, Sephy and Callum are fighting for more than simply the right to be together, in a contemporary dystopian State where strict race laws make daily existence a matter of life and death.
Moore also confirmed a new drama from Line of Duty writer Jed Mercurio and produced by World Productions, Bodyguard is a contemporary thriller featuring the Royalty and Specialist Protection Branch (RaSP) of London's Metropolitan Police Service.
Moore also confirmed a four-part drama entitled Trust Me. The Edinburgh set drama tells the story of Cathy, a hardworking and skilled nurse, who, having lost her job for whistleblowing, is forced to take drastic measures to provide for her daughter.
Moore went on to announce a six-part drama from River writer Abi Morgan. The Split examines the fast-paced circuit of high-powered female divorce lawyers through the lens of three sisters - Hannah, Nina and the youngest, Rose. Hannah and Nina are leading divorce and family law lawyers working for rival firms, whilst Rose is still searching for her place in life.
Away from drama Moore announced Serengeti a six-part wildlife documentary series using dynamic and compelling narrative techniques of long running drama serials, where multiple storylines are woven together, to tell the real life stories of some of the most charismatic animals in Africa. There’s an unspoilt corner of the Serengeti, bordered by two rivers, that is the Africa of your imagination. Unique access to this incredible setting offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to create a bold new genre of natural history filmmaking and drama storytelling. The production will use specially created camera devices, including moving spy cameras, to film the animals of the Serengeti on the move and in their world, experiencing their every emotion.
And One-off documentary Stalkers which looks at the work of Paladin, the National Stalking Advocacy Service, who assist high risk victims of stalking.
