Press will be produced by three-time BAFTA winner Nigel Stafford-Clark.Writer Mike Bartlett says: "From exposing political corruption to splashing on celebrity scandal, editors and journalists have enormous influence over us, yet recent events have shown there's high-stakes and life-changing drama going on in the news organisations themselves. I'm hugely excited to be working with the BBC to make Press, a behind-the-scenes story about a group of diverse and troubled people who shape the stories and headlines we read every day."
