We’ve had The Kennedys, and now Britain’s Channel 4 is in development on a drama about the Murdoch family set in the future.
The bio-pic, written by Peep Show writer Jesse Armstrong, is set in the future as patriarch Rupert Murdoch is dying.
The drama follows what happens at a family dinner party when the relatives fight about who should take over News Corp. The entire Murdoch family is featured in the project.
The Murdochs was originally pitched to Channel 4 around two years ago but interest has now been revived following the phone hacking scandal at the News of the World.
Channel 4’s head of drama Camilla Campbell said, “For me it never really went away, but with the stories about hacking I think the time could be right to make this.”
