The BBC and A24 are teaming for an adaptation of Douglas Stuart’s 2020 Booker Prize-winning novel Shuggie Bain, an international bestseller, sold in 39 countries.

Gaynor Holmes, BBC Drama Commissioning Editor, says: “Shuggie Bain is an extraordinary novel, with all the makings of extraordinary television. It’s a real honour to be working with the immensely talented Douglas Stuart to bring his vision to the BBC.”
