David Tennant: The Politician's Husband, True Love, upcoming releases and events

  • The Politician's Husband 
David Tennant will play the title role in The Politician's Husband for the BBC.


It is a series of three hour long episodes and is being produced by Mentorn-owned Daybreak Pictures to air during 2013 on BBC Two. Lucy Richer will be the executive produce for the BBC alongside David Aukin for Daybreak. Hal Vogel will produce the drama. The director is Simon Cellan Jones and the writer is Paula Milne.
The synopsis is:
"The Politician's Husband is a drama exploring what happens in a political marriage when the wife becomes more successful than her husband.
Aiden Hoynes, a senior Cabinet Minister, is happily married to Freya, a junior Minister who has consistently put her own career ambitions on hold for the sake of Aiden's career and their family.
When Aiden's career path to the top echelons comes to an abrupt halt, the power balance within his marriage is irrevocably shifted as he witnesses his wife's political career soar.
In his desperation to cling to power, Aiden risks destroying everything he holds most dear."
David Tennant has been in London this past week so appears to have finished filming The Spies Of Warsaw in Poland.


The Politician's Husband starts filming in June and then David's next project, Broadchurch, starts filming sometime in August.
