Behind-the-scenes making of ‘Grand Theft Auto’ to be turned into drama by BBC


The BBC has confirmed that it is working on a feature-length drama based on making of Rockstar’s popular video game series Grand Theft Auto.

It has been announced that the popular game series will be turned into a BBC Two television drama as part of the BBC’s new “Make it Digital” initiative which is described as a “major UK-wide initiative to inspire a new generation to get creative with coding, programming, and digital technology.”

The London-based broadcaster has explained that the drama will tell the behind-the-scenes story of the development of the “Grand Theft Auto” series.

According to games journalist Guy Cocker, who is working on the show, the as-yet-untitled GTA show will be a 90-minute drama which will focus on the people responsible for creating the franchise.

Cocker noted that Rockstar is not involved with the production of the show.

No release date has yet been announced.
