Clare Mottershead, the BBC’s commissioning editor for factual and events told Politicalite: last night: “British TV actors are among the best in the world, but there’s still plenty of undiscovered talent waiting for their big break.

“In this entertaining and revealing new competition, we’re scouring the UK to find our next acting superstars as we put them put through their paces behind the scenes of some of Britain’s biggest and best loved dramas.”

Acting hopefuls are already being encouraged to audition for the show.

Leanne Klein, Wall to Wall Media’s managing director, said: “As a nation, TV drama is now the art-form we consume more than any other, so it’s hugely exciting to be making a series that will take viewers behind the scenes of some of our favourite TV shows and unpack the essential skills of acting via the incredible expertise of leading lights in the industry.

“I hope it will be a gripping watch for all who love watching actors as well as those who’d love to act.”
