Is it possible to make a TV show based on a factual storey? Certainly! The BBC is gearing ready to produce a new show titled Sherwood. Written and created by James Graham, this TV series is a drama that will explore “the frayed social and political fabric of modern-day, post-Brexit Britain”.
Sherwood will be a six-episode limited series on BBC One. Peaky Blinders, Luther, and Killing Eve are just a few of BBC One’s previous hits. Lewis Arnold, the show’s director and executive producer, and Rebecca Hodgson, the show’s producer, are working with James Graham and House Productions’ Juliette Howell and Tessa Ross to develop the show. David Morrissey and Joanne Froggatt have been cast as the show’s stars.
“Sherwood” will take place in a small mining town in Nottinghamshire, and is based on real-life atrocities. There is a chance that the creator, James Graham, grew up in the same town. To begin with, these two fatalities appear unrelated, yet they are truly intertwined in this TV episode. Those who live in the village are then haunted by the ghosts of their own history.
An already-shattered community is shattered even further when two shocking and unexpected killings set off a global manhunt in the BBC drama Sherwood. Also, “Anxiety and distrust grow, between lifelong neighbours and towards the police forces who come on town, the sad killings threaten to inflame historic split ignited during the Miners’ Strike three decades earlier.”
In other words, what do we know thus far about this impending mystery/crime/thriller show on television? What is the cast and release date of the film? What we know about Sherwood so far:
David Morrissey, who starred in Red Riding Hood and Liar, will star in a new BBC One drama titled Sherwood.
There are two terrible and unexpected killings that destroy an already fragmented town and create a large manhunt at the heart of Sherwood, a contemporary thriller set in a mining village in Nottinghamshire that is inspired in part by real events, according to the BBC synopsis.
As distrust and animosity grows amongst longtime neighbours and the police, the terrible killings threaten to rekindle the divisions that were started during the Miners’ Strike three decades earlier.”
“The tattered social and political fabric of modern-day, post-Brexit Britain” is explored in this gripping drama, penned by Quiz writer James Graham.

“When Is It Coming Out?” Sherwood asks.
Only a few details regarding Sherwood, such as the release date have been made public. A release date of May 1, 2022, has been speculated. The BBC’s media office has confirmed that filming for “The Nightmare Before Christmas” will begin in late July 2021 in Nottinghamshire.
Sherwood’s premiere date has yet to be announced by the BBC, but we’ll keep you informed as soon as we hear anything.
That’s when we may expect to see it in Britain, provided everything goes according to plan, between now and mid-to-late 2018. Also, it is likely that the show will be released in the US and other nations in the next year.

The cast of Sherwood
Sherwood’s release date is still a mystery, but we do know some of the cast members, some of whom will be well-known.
Robert Glenister will portray DI Kevin Salisbury, Lesley Manville will portray Julie Jackson, and Joanne Froggatt will portray Sarah Vincent, according to the BBC’s media centre in July 2021. DCS Ian St Clair (David Morrissey) is tasked with solving a string of murders in Nottinghamshire. Having to work with erstwhile competitor DI Kevin Salisbury (Hustle and Spooks star Robert Glenister) just adds to the difficulty.
Sarah (Joanne Froggatt) is engaged to Bally Gill’s Neel (Bally Gill). Her father-in-law, played by Sweet Tooth’s Adeel Akhtar, has a strained connection with her. These characters, as well as others from Breeders, Raised by Wolves, and The Crown, as well as Lorraine Ashbourne and Claire Rushbrook, who play residents of the mining town, round out the cast.
Sherwood Series Storyline
According to Deadline, James Graham will retell the true story of Keith Frogson’s murder by Robert Boyer in 2004, as well as the shooting of Chanel Taylor by her father Terry Rodgers in a nearby village.
Both Boyer and Rodgers are said to have escaped to the woods in Nottinghamshire and taken refuge there. People in the area were stunned and a large manhunt was launched after both of these deaths.
Consequently, Sherwood will essentially combine the facts and fantasy in this storey. A remark by James Graham, “So much is stated about the differences and challenges in these ‘Red Wall’ communities, but they’re not usually comprehended. My heart is full with gratitude that I have the opportunity to tell a dramatised storey about a very real event, but one that is filled with the humour and heart and tenacity of the people I know and love in the area.”
