Producer, director, and writer, Paul Greengrass, will have his 1999 film "The Murder of Stephen Lawrence" shown as a series on ITV Network.


The ITV network is set to premiere a series of three parts, which will center on Greengrass's production. The series "Stephen" will be produced by some genius minds.

Jed Mercurio, the film producer of "The Bodyguard," will team up with Hat Trick Productions. Greengrass and Mark Redhead, who were the producers of the initial drama will serve as executive producers.

Talented writers like Joe Cottrell Boyce, who wrote "Treasure," and Frank Cottrell Boyce of "Hilary and Jackie" will work hand in hand with directors, Alrick Riley and Madonna Baptiste.

"Stephen" concentrates on the real-life experiences of a young African American boy who was murdered at an early age while waiting at the bus station. His parents Doreen and Neville Lawrence are in support of the entire production.


The series also encompasses the Lawrence family's struggles in securing justice over the death of their son. They worked closely with the DCI Clive Driscoll in bringing their son's murderers to book.

After years of a failed conviction, even though the names of about five suspects were given to the police, the Metropolitan police were accused of institutional racism.

For the couple, now is the perfect time to debut the series as it is coming at a time when people advocate for racial equality.


Two of the murderers identified as David Norris and Gary Dopson were connected to the brutal murder of Stephen in Eltham, Southeast London.

The deceased's parents revealed that they are thrilled that the world will bear witness to their struggles years after their son passed away. They mentioned that they were victims of police racism.


For the couple, now is the perfect time to debut the series as it is coming at a time when people advocate for racial equality and reformation in the police system that is prejudiced.

Media outlets across the UK are conversant with the brutal murder of 18-year-old Stephen Lawrence. In April an Instagram account named "linkuptv" posted a message in remembrance of the deceased and after sharing an image of Stephen.


Stephen is not the only young man in the UK who has been a victim of racism. Over the years, there has been either case of justice obstruction or attacks that exacts racism. In 2005, Anthony Walker was killed in Merseyside in the UK.

Greengrass is reputable for being a credible producer and researcher who has worked on other award-winning productions and has earned due recognition and award from the movie industry.
