Russell T Davies’ new three-part drama NOLLY to premiere on ITVX


All at The Agency would like to send our congratulations to our genius client Russell T Davies and all of the team who worked on his new series NOLLY (Quay Street Productions/ITV Studios), which premieres on Thursday 2nd of February on ITVX.

In Russell’s fantastic new drama, Academy Award-nominated and BAFTA-winning actor Helena Bonham Carter stars as Noele Gordon (or Nolly to her friends) who was a legend in her own lifetime. As flame-haired widow Meg Richardson in the long-running soap opera ‘Crossroads’, she was one of the most famous people in Britain. Then in 1981, at the height of the show’s success and the peak of Nolly’s fame, she was axed without ceremony, without warning and with no explanation. With the boss’s words “all good things must come to an end” ringing in her ears, Noele Gordon found herself thrown out of the show that was her life for over 18 years.

The beautifully rendered drama was directed by Peter Hoar, Executive Produced by Nicola Shindler, and the Series producer is BAFTA-winner Karen Lewis. NOLLY was commissioned by ITV’s Head of Drama, Polly Hill.

Russell T Davies is represented by Bethan Evans at The Agency (London) Ltd.
