Dobbs/Price Collaborate On New Thriller

HOUSE OF CARDS author Michael Dobbs is working on what he’s calling “a very major project” with Adam Price, the creator of Danmarks Radio’s (DR) hit political drama Borgen. The project is expected to be on the BBC next year.

Dobbs’ political thriller House Of Cards was adapted into a BBC TV series and more recently an American version starring Kevin Spacey. Dobbs told BBC Radio 4’s The World This Weekend he believed that British political drama had not been at its best recently but it was by no means dead.  A Tory peer, Dobbs has written such plays as The Turning Point and A Family Affair. DR also produced the international crime thriller The Killing.
