Drama Republic, who produced The Honourable Woman for BBC2, will be adapting David Nichollsí Us for the BBC. Playwright Nick Payne will write the screenplay for the mini-series.

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, Us tells the story of Douglas Peterson who wakes up one morning to discover his wife wants to leave him. Their son, Albie, is about to leave home for college and she wants to be free. Douglas has meticulously planned a trip around Europe to celebrate their sonís graduation from school and now clings to this holiday with desperation. He hopes to win back his wife and rekindle a friendship with his teenage son. Douglas is convinced it will be the greatest trip of their lives. Through the story of Douglas and Connieís ill-fated love, Nicholls weaves the tale of their early courtship.

Nichollsí two previous books, Starter for Ten and One Day, have both been made into films.
