Sean Bean and Nicola Walker are to star in Marriage from writer and director Stefan Golaszewski. Produced by The Forge and The Money Men, Marriage is a four part drama for BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

Marriage sees married couple Ian (Bean) and Emma (Walker) negotiate the ups and downs of their 30 year marriage. We see them dealing with the insecurities, the ambiguities, the hopes and the fears that are part of all marriages as the drama explores the risks and the gifts of a long-term intimate relationship.

Marriage was commissioned by Piers Wenger, Director of BBC Drama and Charlotte Moore, Chief Content Officer. Executive Producers are Tommy Bulfin for the BBC, Beth Willis and George Faber for The Forge and Richard Laxton and Stefan Golaszewski for The Money Men. The producer is Lyndsay Robinson.

Beth Willis, Executive Producer for The Forge, says: “Stefan’s exquisite observation of marriage is funny, warm and searingly honest. His writing is a joy to read. I cannot wait to see Sean and Nicola bring to life this wonderful couple.”

Piers Wenger, Director of BBC Drama Commissioning, adds: “The extraordinary depth and complexity of Stefan’s characters calls for two of our most talented and loved actors. Enter Nicola and Sean. It’s always a privilege to have you on the BBC.”

The show is produced in association with All3Media International who represent the drama globally.

Filming will begin shortly and transmission details will follow in due course.
