River, a Crime Drama, ordered by BBC

Deadline reports that BBC One has ordered a 6-episode crime drama -- River-- written by Abi Morgan, who won an Emmy Award this year for her work on BBC Two's The Hour.

John River is a brilliant police officer whose genius and fault-line is the fragility of his mind — a man haunted by the murder victims whose cases he must lay to rest. A man who must walk a professional tightrope between a pathology so extreme he risks permanent dismissal, and a healthy state of mind that would cure him of his gift.

Filming is expected to begin in London next year with a premiere date in 2015.
