Peter A. Dowling (“Flightplan”) has penned a six-part submarine drama titled “Tenacity” for ITV. The project hails from “His Dark Materials” producer Bad Wolf and Entertainment One.
Inspired by the eponymous J.S. Law novel, the story follows disgraced military detective Danielle ‘Dan’ Lewis who is sent to investigate a case when a dead submariner is discovered aboard the British nuclear submarine Tenacity.
When the case turns to murder, it puts her in conflict with the crew, her superiors, and an assassin who has infiltrated her nuclear base with an agenda that will hurt everyone Lewis loves.
Filming begins sometime next year while Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner will executive produce.
