Lindsay Wright (Without Sin, This Is Joan Collins,The Whistleblowers, The Mystery of D.B Cooper) is scoring the upcoming ITV/BritBox drama Archie. The show is written by Jeff Pope (Philomena, Stan & Ollie) and stars Jason Isaacs as actor Cary Grant, as well as Harriet Walter, Laura Aikman, Kara Tointon, Dainton Anderson, Calam Lynch and Oaklee Pendergast. The 4-part series directed by Paul Andrew Williams (Bull, White Dragon) intercuts scenes from the Hollywood legend’s childhood living in extreme poverty in the early 20th Century with his life in 1961 at the height of his fame. Pope is also executive producing the Etta Pictures production with Grant’s daughter Jennifer, as well as BritBox International’s Diederick Santer (Grantchester, Flowers). Wright has previously collaborated with Pope & Williams on the 2021 series The Walk-In. Archie will premiere in the UK this November on ITVX (before making its debut on ITV a few months later) and in other markets on BritBox.

Wright has also recently scored the Johnny Flynn- & Roisin Gallagher-starring Sky comedy The Lovers, which just premiered overseas earlier this month.
