“I just felt like writing another one.”
Award-winning Peter Morgan talking about The Jury, which begins on ITV1 at 9pm tonight.
“A trial brings people together in a way that really intrigued me.”
Peter wrote the first series of The Jury, screened in 2002.
WHAT will your verdict be?
Back in January 2002 I attended the launch of a new ITV1 drama series called The Jury.
Written by Peter Morgan, whose subsequent credits include The Last King Of Scotland, The Queen, Longford, The Other Boleyn Girl, Frost/Nixon, The Damned United and The Special Relationship.
Last week I attended the launch of a new ITV1 drama series also called The Jury.
Or what in the big screen world would be called The Jury 2.
Peter’s follow up to his original series.
He was there along with leading lady Julie Walters, who plays defence barrister Emma Watts.
