the red tent

UKTV channel Drama has exclusively acquired the rights to 'The Red Tent', a mini-series starring Minnie Driver.

A sweeping tale set in Old Testament times, 'The Red Tent' tells the story of the twelve tribes of Israel, as told through the eyes of Dinah, the daughter of Leah (Driver) and Jacob (Iain Glen).

The tent of the title is Dinah's home, which she shares with other women in her tribe, including her mother and Jacob's three other wives: Rachel, Zilpah and Bilhah. It's also where the women swap stories, share advice and raise their daughters.

However, the close-knit family environment is torn apart when her family disapprove of Dinah falling in love.

It also stars Rebecca Ferguson, Morena Baccarin, Will Tudor and Debra Winger.

"'The Red Tent' is a perfect addition to Drama's growing slate of shows, featuring an epic story with a fantastic ensemble cast," said Alexandra Finlay, UKTV's head of acquisitions and co-productions. "We are delighted to bring this exclusive first-run title to the channel."

'The Red Tent' will air on Drama early in 2017.
