ITV announces Murder of Stephen Lawrence sequel series

OHMYGOSSIP — ITV has announced a three-part sequel to ‘The Murder of Stephen Lawrence’.
The upcoming series – which will be directed by Alrick Riley and produced by Madonna Baptiste with a script by brothers Frank and Joe Cottrell Boyce – has been confirmed 21 years after the original programme hit the small screen.
‘Stephen’ will portray events from 2006, 13 years after Lawrence’s death on the evening of April 22, 1993 when he was killed in a racially motivated attack whilst waiting for a bus.
In a press release for the production – which is being made with the full support of his parents Doreen and Neville – ITV said the upcoming sequel will pick up after the original investigation failed to convince those responsible.
The network added: “The drama tells the story of the ongoing struggle by Doreen and Neville Lawrence to achieve justice and how a detective, DCI Clive Driscoll – working closely with the Lawrences – puts together an investigation that finally – more than 18 years after his death – secures the convictions of two of the gang who committed the murder of Stephen.”
Baroness Doreen commented: “I am pleased that The Murder of Stephen Lawrence is being broadcast again.
“Though the events portrayed in the film took place many years ago they are even more relevant today.
“I am aware that the experience of police racism that we suffered as a family has been the experience of many in the UK.
“I hope that the film and the drama which has been commissioned will provide some insight into what we went through and give some hope to others that justice can eventually prevail.”
Bafta-winning ‘The Murder of Stephen Lawrence’ – written and directed by Paul Greengrass and produced by Mark Redhead – will be repeated on ITV on July 16.
A live discussion programme ‘Stephen Lawrence: Has Britain changed?’ will also air on ITV immediately before the re-broadcast of the original drama.
