[10.21 - French Time] Broadcast reports that ITV has commissioned a 2 x 60-minute crime drama adapted from Sophie Hannah’s novel The Point Of Rescue.

According to Broadcast, Point Of Rescue (working title) will start filming on location in Buckinghamshire this month and stars Olivia Williams (The Ghost Writer) as DS Charlie Zailer and Darren Boyd as DC Simon Waterhouse. It will be aired on ITV1 in 2011.

This new crime drama, produced by Hat Trick Productions and distributed globally by BBC Worldwide, rejoins the recent ITV crime novel adaptations DCI Banks, Vera (starring Brenda Blethyn) and The Suspicions of Mr Whicher.

No wonder why Downton Abbey , ITV1's lavish period drama from Carnival Films, is such a hit. Maybe Carnival could do a Cluedo episode...
