When England won the World Cup in July 1966 Bobby Moore became a national hero. Swept up by the media frenzy and the nation's adoration, he and wife Tina were the original ‘golden' couple.
A new three-part drama, Tina and Bobby, relates the story of the England and West Ham legend's life with his childhood sweetheart, Tina Dean, from their humble beginnings to the dizzy heights of superstardom.
The 3 x 60 minute drama based on Tina Moore's memoir, Bobby Moore: By The Person Who Knew Him Best, will be produced by the ITV Studios drama team in Manchester overseen by Creative Director Kieran Roberts who will executive produce Tina and Bobby.
Written by Lauren Klee (EastEnders, Waterloo Road, Holby City), Tina and Bobby is an epic love story about an ordinary girl from Essex who fell head over heels in love with an ordinary boy, who just happened to be an extraordinarily talented footballer.
The drama will go into production in Manchester during the summer of 2016 and will be produced by Spencer Campbell
