Coastal Productions commissioned for BBC Daytime drama special

Alison Sharman, Controller of BBC Daytime, has commissioned North East England production company Coastal Productions to make a one-off drama for 2005 starring Robson Green.
‘Beaten’, made by Green's own production company, will focus on the issue of domestic violence in the home of a Newcastle docker, and will go out on BBC One next year.
It will be directed by Jon East and written by Alison Hume. The Executive Producer is Sandra Jobling.
Alison Sharman said: "Beaten will be a thought provoking and powerful drama for the BBC Daytime audience, and we're thrilled to be collaborating with Robson again."
Robson Green added: "This commission from Alison Sharman is fantastic news for Coastal and it's great to be working with the BBC again.
"Beaten will raise many important issues and I'm really excited to be working with Jon East and Alison Hume."
Coastal Productions was set up by Robson Green and Sandra Jobling eight years ago.
It has co-production credits for ‘Grafters’, ‘Rhinocerous’, and ‘Touching Evil III’, as well as ‘Wire In The Blood’ and ‘Take Me’ as independent productions.
Beaten is Coastal's first BBC commission.
