David Burke’s cold war novel The Spy Who Came In From The Co-Op: Melita Norwood and the Ending of Cold War Espionage is being developed into a drama seriesAccording to Deadline, the production will be shared by The BBC, Two Cities Television, and Water and Power Productions.

Julie Gearey (Cuffs, Prisoners’ Wives) will be writing the script based on Burke’s novel. The Spy Who Came in From the Co-Op focuses on one-time British Spy Melita Norwood, who was revealed to have been working with the USSR for decades back in 1999. Given that Norwood was then 87, authorities decided she was too old to prosecute. Even though she’d helped the Soviets complete a nuclear bomb five years sooner than they would have without her. She died in 2005 at the age of 93.

This marks yet another political-oriented project for Two Cities Television, a BBC Studios-backed drama produced which was established by former President of Programming at USA Entertainment Michael Jackson and Chairman of Universal Television and President of Programming for IAC, and Wall to Wall founder Alex Graham. They are also developing a drama series based on Michael Wolff’s tell-all novel Fire and Fury, which follows Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and subsequent early days in the White House.
