In March 2014 Spanner Films announced their new project "Undercovers", a television drama series about the undercover police officers who infilitrated the British activist scene for 50 years, and the women who unknowingly had longterm relationships and even children with the spies. The series is being written by Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire, Hunger Games, Full Monty), Alice Nutter, and Franny Armstrong, produced by Spanner Films and executive produced by Tony Garnett. Filming is due to start in Autumn 2014, with an early 2015 release.
