BBC2 calls time on The Hour

by | Feb 12, 2013 | All, TV News

Broadcast Now have announced that BBC2 will not be commissioning a third series of Abi Morgan’s The Hour. The series, which stars Dominic West and Ramola Gari was the first drama series on BBC2 to receive a second series in a decade. The series was well recieved by critics and fans alike and was nominated for awards and was shown in America by BBCAMERICA.   It had been the original intention of the production company behind the programme, Kudos, to produce at least three series. Jane Featherstone, chief executive of Kudos Film and Television, said she was “sad and disappointed” by the decision.

The BBC said: “We loved the show but have to make hard choices to bring new shows through.”

Both series are available on DVD.
