Denise Mina’s Morrow series to be adapted for TV by ‘Shetland’ lead writer

Screenwriter and executive producer David Kane, who is the lead writer on the TV show “Shetland”, is developing Denise Mina’s five-book Morrow series (Orion) into a multi-season TV series, set in Glasgow. David Kane and Denise Mina previously worked together on BBC drama “The Field of Blood”, based on her book of the same name, which starred Jayd Johnson, Peter Capaldi and David Morrissey. The show, which is not yet attached to a broadcaster, will be jointly executive produced by Denise Mina, David Kane and Freedom Scripted creative director Mike Ellen.

Denise Mina said: "You’d be hard pressed to fit a Rizla between my writing and Davie Kane’s, and I’m well aware that I’m bigging myself up in saying that. He’s a funny, brutal, wild writer and I’m honoured whenever our names are put together."
