Deadline.com reports that David Tennant and Emily Watson are set to star as husband and wife in BBC Two's three-part series THE POLITICIAN'S HUSBAND.
The series will focus on the "shifting balance of power in a political marriage and the consequences when a wife becomes more successful than her husband." The drama was created by Paula Milne and is a sequel to 1995’s 'The Politician's Wife', winner of an International Emmy and BAFTA award. That project starred Minnie Driver, Juliet Stevenson and Trevor Eve.
THE POLITICIAN'S HUSBAND is being produced by Daybreak Pictures and will be directed by Simon Cellan Jones, best known for Showtime’s The Borgias. Filming on the series is set to begin this month.
Watson is best known for her role of Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series. She appeared in all eight Harry Potter films alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint.
