Peaky Blinders moves to BBC One

by | Aug 22, 2018 | All, TV News

Speaking today at the Edinburgh TV Festival Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content announced that this year’s Bafta award-winning drama series Peaky Blinders will move to the nation’s favourite channel for its fifth series next year.

The hit series, written and created by Steven Knight and produced by Caryn Mandabach Productions and Tiger Aspect Productions has become a cult phenomenon on BBC Two since launching in 2013. It’s played a key part in the incredible resurgence of drama on the channel over the last five years.

Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content, says: “Peaky Blinders is world class drama at the top of its game and the time has arrived for it to move to the UK’s biggest channel. Steven Knight’s epic storytelling is authentic and utterly compelling and I want to give it the chance to be enjoyed by an even broader audience on BBC One. We couldn’t have asked for a better response to series four and the impact it had with young audiences. This move will also give BBC Two more creative headroom to experiment with new drama.”

Steven Knight, Writer and Executive Producer, says: “I am thrilled that our precious Peaky Blinders is moving to BBC One. Peaky is a show nurtured and grown by the audience who have found us through word of mouth. Hopefully, this move will help us reach even more people.”

Caryn Mandabach, Executive Producer, Caryn Mandabach Productions, says: “Peaky Blinders has touched the minds and hearts of everyone who’s watched it and we are honoured to bring a whole new audience with us as we move our merry gang to BBC One for the next series.”
