A TV drama is underway following the rise of Sir Philip Green to a retail power.
Mammoth Screen, the company behind Victoria and Poldark, has confirmed securing the rights to adapt a book covering the Arcadia Group boss’s business dealings. While the dramatisation is in the early stages of production, there is no set date yet for either filming or release.
Excited to announce that I’ve sold the TV drama rights for Damaged Goods, my book on Philip Green, to Mammoth Screen, the guys who made Poldark. Hopefully PG will keep his top on in this one. Thanks to @tobymundy for his help https://t.co/FpEezhQRAr

Damien Timmer, head of Mammoth, told Radio Times: “It’s the ultimate story of hubris and greed. We look forward to adapting this extraordinary book into a gripping and seminal drama for our times.”
Scripts are in development with a view to finding a broadcaster.
