Parade’s End is a flagship five-part drama adapted by internationally acclaimed playwright and screenwriter Tom Stoppard (Brazil, Empire of the Sun, Shakespeare in Love) from a quartet of novels by Ford Madox Ford, considered by many to be one of the literary masterworks of the 20th Century. It is directed by multi Emmy-nominated and Bafta award-winning film maker Susanna White (Generation Kill, Bleak House, Jane Eyre, Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang).  
Parade’s End is set during a formative period of British history – from the twilight years of the Edwardian era to the end of the First World War.  At its centre is English aristocrat Christopher Tietjens (Cumberbatch), his beautiful but wilful wife Sylvia (Hall), and Valentine Wannop, a young suffragette, played by Logie-nominated actress Adelaide Clemens (Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, Generation Um, Camilla Dickenson).
Ben Stephenson, controller, BBC Drama Commissioning says: "It’s great to be working with HBO again on this ambitious project which further demonstrates BBC Two’s ongoing commitment to original British drama in 2012. The stellar cast assembled simply confirms the buzz and excitement around Sir Tom Stoppard’s return to British television.” 
 Kary Antholis, president, HBO Miniseries says:  “The marriage of Tom Stoppard’s extraordinary scripts and Susanna White’s singular cinematic vision  presented us with an irresistible opportunity.  As we find ourselves approaching the centennial of World War I, this work will resonate with contemporary audiences as a touchstone for the human effects of global social transformation.”
Parade’s End was commissioned by Janice Hadlow, Controller, BBC Two and Ben Stephenson, Controller, BBC Drama Commissioning. It will join a raft of new drama series on the channel including Jed Mercurio’s Line Of Duty, Paula Milne’s White Heat, Stephen Poliakoff’s Dancing On The Edge, and a major new cycle of Shakespeare’s four most acclaimed historical works as part of a season based on the Bard’s life and works. 
Parade’s End is produced by Oscar and Bafta-winning David Parfitt (The Madness of King George, Shakespeare in Love, My Week with Marilyn) and twice Bafta-winning Selwyn Roberts (Longitude, Shackleton).  Michele Buck, Damien Timmer and Tom Stoppard are executive producers for Mammoth Screen, Piers Wenger for the BBC.
