The BBC have released images for their upcoming drama Marriage, which stars Unforgotten’s Nicola Walker and Sean Bean who will portray a married couple from Mum writer Stefan Golaszewski’s for his first prime time drama.
The four-part drama sees married couple Ian (Bean) and Emma (Walker) negotiate the ups and downs of their 30-year marriage. It will see them dealing with the insecurities, the ambiguities, the hopes and the fears that are part of all marriages, as the drama explores the risks and the gifts of a long-term intimate relationship. Sometimes funny, sometimes moving, always revealing.
Also announced is the casting of James Bolam (New Tricks, The Likely Lads) as Gerry, Emma’s father, Henry Lloyd-Hughes (The Inbetweeners, Ragdoll) as Jamie, Emma’s boss and Chantelle Alle (We Are Lady Parts, Mood) as Jessica, Ian and Emma’s daughter.
Marriage is expected later this year on BBC One.
