The BBC has picked up popular drama The Heights, following a group of residents all living in a social housing tower (“The Towers”) that’s surrounded by a gentrifying area.
An Australian import, the serial drama is produced in sunny Perth, and follows six families living in a tower block, situated in a rapidly gentrifying inner-city neighbourhood, Arcadia Heights. And when the chips are down, the diverse group of residents must stick together…
Carla-Maria Lawson, Head of BBC Daytime and Early Peak, said: “This slice of life from the melting pot that is urban Australia is loaded with humour and drama and quickly draws you into the very diverse lives of its characters. Daytime viewers love drama with compelling story telling at its heart and The Heights does that brilliantly.”
