Jessica Brown Findlay has been cast in a new two-part adaptation of Sadie Jones’s The Outcast on BBC One.

Jones has based the script on her own Costa First Novel Award-winning book. The 2×90 minute drama also stars George Mackay, Greg Wise and Hattie Morahan.

It will be produced by Blueprint Pictures and directed by Iain Softley.

Head of BBC Films Christine Langan said: “The Outcast is a captivating and heart-breaking story of a young man’s desperate situation.

“I’m thrilled that we’ve been able to work with BBC One to bring a two-part adaptation to screen to retain the essence of Sadie Jones’s award-winning novel.”

Mackay plays Lewis, who is 10 years old when his mother Elizabeth (Morahan) dies, leaving him his father Gilbert (Wise) who he barely knows.

Gilbert remarries Alice (Brown Findlay), while Lewis relies on his friendships with neighbouring children Tamsin and Kit (Daisy Bevan and Jessica Barden).

The Outcast is described as “a deeply romantic, uncomfortably honest coming-of-age story set in booming post-war Britain”.
