'Doctor Who' star Peter Capaldi to helm new comedy pilot for Sky Studios
Former 'Doctor Who' star Peter Capaldi is all set to helm a comedy-drama pilot for Sky Studios about a mother who adopts five children.
According to a US-based news outlet, Capaldi will helm They F**k You Up, which is based on Sarah Naish's novel 'But He Looks So Normal: A Bad-Tempered Parenting Guide for Adoptive Parents and Foster Parents'.
The non-broadcast pilot will be produced by Tod Productions, the STV Studios-backed firm established by Vera producer Elaine Collins, and Sky Studios.
Thomas Eccleshare, whose first drama Witness Number Three premiered this year on Channel 5, a UK broadcaster owned by Paramount, is the author of the novel They F**k You Up. The Sky Studios production, according to Eccleshare, was a "funny, honest and acerbic" look at parenting.
