I love a good British drama. They’re short, but so so sweet. Bodyguard, only running six episodes, will grab you right from the start. It was nominated for “Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series” at the 2019 Emmy Awards.
Where did Jed Mercurio come up with the idea for Bodyguard? How did the lead character develop over time? What was the process of casting the lead? If it was written as an American show, how would the writing be different? These questions and more are answered in this insightful interview.
