Eagle Eye Drama has just completed filming in Belgium and York on Patience, a new six-part police crime drama set in York starring Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul's Laura Fraser  and Malpractice's Ella Maisy Purvis.

Patience is adapted from the original French series Astrid and Raphaelle. The series will follow Patience Evans (Purvis) who works in the criminal records department of Yorkshire Police, cataloguing and filing the evidence produced during major cases. A young autistic woman, she craves routine and order of her job but yearns for more. 

As a self-taught criminologist, Patience has an instinctive eye for crime scenes. Her talent is tapped by Detective Bea Metcalf (Fraser), which opens a door into a whole new world for Patience. All neuro-divergent characters within the series will be played by neuro-diverse actors, including the title role of Patience. 

Patience has been acquired for Channel 4 by Polly Scates, Head of Acquisitions, and will be directed by Maarten Moerkerke. Matt Baker, whose credits include Hotel Portofino, Professor T, and Suspect heads up the writing team and is joined by Stephen Brady, Sarah Freethy, and Daniella DeVinter, all of whom have personal experience relating to autism.

Jo McGrath and Walter Iuzzolino executive produce for Eagle Eye Drama, and is a co-production of JLA Productions.

The series will be distributed worldwide by Beta Film and is being produced in association with Happy Duck Films. It is also supported by the Belgian Tax Shelter.
