Deadline is reporting that Amazon and BBC are teaming up on a British comedy-drama The Offenders, from The Office co-creator Stephen Merchant and Mayans M.C. co-creator Elgin James.
The Offenders (working title) follows seven strangers from different walks of life forced together to complete a community payback sentence in Bristol.
Kate Daughton is Commissioning Editor for the BBC. Amazon and BBC’s previous collaborations include Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s award-winning Fleabag and Steve McQueen’s drama Small Axe.
Ever since The Office, I love finding ways to bring unlikely groups of people together and watch the sparks fly.
