Downing Street "follows a PM and a team of senior advisers and young staffers, juggling complicated personal lives with the round-the-clock demands of professional duty," according to Deadline. SEAL Team and Justified producers Carl Beverly and Sarah Timberman are teaming with Andrew Davies, the writer who co-wrote the original British drama House of Cards, on the potential drama series for Lionsgate. "As a newly christened leader takes the reins of power, they are immediately confronted by a string of crises," per Deadline. "The resulting scrutiny of the prime minister’s competence, motives, and personal life by political opponents, a cynical public, beleaguered royals and a rabid press, threaten to derail the Prime Minister’s tenure and expose damaging personal indiscretions."
