Maven Screen Media are working with PBS, the U.S. public broadcaster, on a drama series based on the public and private life of Clementine Churchill, wife of Winston Churchill.

Clementine was a fiercely independent and very modern heroine who helped her country fight fascism and supported her Husband in the many roles he held in public office. Each episode will follow Clementine through pivotal moments of her life such as her courtship with Winston, time as a suffragette, relationship with American Harry Hopkins and climactic trip to Russia where she goes toe to toe with Stalin.

The series will be five parts and executively produced by Celine Rattray, Trudie Styler, David Thompson, Sayako Teitelbaum, Susanne Simpson and Margaret Nagle.
