‘Brooklyn’ TV Spin-Off In Development | TV News
Who watched Oscar-hopeful Brooklyn and remained unmoved? Along with The Danish Girl, Brooklyn is the most beautiful of the award contenders this year, only with less melancholy than the former.
Now, it may be that more of its vividly-coloured beauty may grace our small screens in the form of a TV series as it has been announced that Wildgaze Films are interested in producing one revolving around Julie Walter‘s character Mrs. Keogh.
Producers Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey are developing the idea for the BBC in their drama department. They are hopeful that Walters will reprise her character for the series, who was undoubtedly one of the anchors of the film.
However, we shouldn’t be expecting this to arrive any time soon as the duo have stated that they intend to wait until Brooklyn is out of cinemas and on to DVD and Blu-Ray before carrying the idea forward any further.
Although the producers have stated that they would like for other actors to return, it is unlikely that the star of the piece, Saoirse Ronan, will as her schedule is starting to look a little hectic with parts in The Seagull and the stage production of The Crucible keeping her weighed down.
Regardless if Ronan finds time, a TV spin-off of Brooklyn will be a beautiful addition to BBC drama. If you haven’t already seen Brooklyn, then check out its trailer below.
