First look images released of Sean Bean and Nicola Walker in Stefan Golaszewski’s drama Marriage

Produced by The Forge (Help, Roadkill, National Treasure) and The Money Men, three first look images have been released of Sean Bean (Time, Broken, Game of Thrones) and Nicola Walker (Last Tango In Halifax, The Split, Unforgotten) and further casting has been announced for Marriage, a new four part drama written and directed by Stefan Golaszewski for BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

Marriage sees married couple Ian (Bean) and Emma (Walker) negotiate the ups and downs of their 30-year marriage.

We see them dealing with the insecurities, the ambiguities, the hopes and the fears that are part of all marriages, as the drama explores the risks and the gifts of a long-term intimate relationship. Sometimes funny, sometimes moving, always revealing.

Also announced is the casting of James Bolam (New Tricks, The Likely Lads) as Gerry, Emma’s father, Henry Lloyd-Hughes (The Inbetweeners, Ragdoll) as Jamie, Emma’s boss and Chantelle Alle (We Are Lady Parts, Mood) as Jessica, Ian and Emma’s daughter.

Marriage is a 4×60” series and is produced by The Forge Entertainment and The Money Men. It was commissioned by Piers Wenger, Director of BBC Drama, and Charlotte Moore, Chief Content Officer, and will be written and directed by Stefan Golaszewski. Executive Producers are Tommy Bulfin for the BBC, Beth Willis and George Faber for The Forge and Richard Laxton and Stefan Golaszewski for The Money Men. The producer is Lyndsay Robinson (Him And Her, Mum). The show is produced in association with All3Media International who represent the drama globally.

Filming has completed and Marriage will air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer later this year.
