Series creator Neil Cross is on board to bring the production to life with production expected to begin early next year.
According to Cross, “In the end, we picked up the phone to some old friends and asked if they’d like to find out what happens next. It turns out, they would. So that’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to find out what happens next.”
