The Churchill Detectives

Project Format

Genre
Crime / Mystery / Period Drama

Logline
When the world needed Churchill, he needed them

Short Description
Spanning three decades, we learn what shaped the two detectives tasked with protecting Winston Churchill through Germany’s onslaught of Britain during the Second World War, and how they used their own trials and tribulations to help save the world from Hitler.

Audience
PRIMARY – Mature Adults, male and female (30-55)
SECONDARY – Young Adults, male and female (21-29)

Comparative Shows
Birdsong, Red Riding Trilogy, The Hour

Note
We have a strong vision of following the story of two detectives’ lives between the 20’s and 50’s in Britain – one is smooth and suave, the other a broken man with a knack for catching bad guys. Although they can’t stand each other, a begrudging respect sees them form an unbreakable alliance during the most important years of Churchill’s reign.
