BBC commissions new drama Lost Boys and Fairies.
The four-part drama, written by Daf James, focuses on a queer, Welsh adoption story.
Gabriel is a singer and all round artistic extraordinaire in Cardiff’s queer club space called Neverland, who decides to adopt his first child with his partner Andy.
However, Gabriel has old wounds that need to be healed, leading him to go on a journey of self-discovery and repair the fractured relationship with his dad before he can be the parent he needs to be to 7-year-old Jake.
James developed the series with Duck Soup Films as part of BBC Writersroom’s TV drama Writers’ Programme 2019.
Lost Boys and Fairies will be filmed in Wales, with casting to be announced at a later date.
Daf James commented: “It means the world to me that this queer, Welsh, adoption story has found its home on BBC One. It’s a story I’m deeply passionate about and I can’t overstate how indebted I am to Duck Soup Films and the BBC for empowering me to tell it authentically and without compromise.”
