ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) has signed a deal with Swedish broadcaster SVT for a tranche of programmes, including forthcoming drama Vanity Fair, a new adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray’s literary classic.
The seven-part drama, produced by Mammoth Screen with Amazon Studios, was commissioned by ITV in the UK and is due to air later this year.

Other upcoming dramas included in the deal, which totals over 80 hours of programming, are Tall Story Pictures’ Trauma, a tense three-part thriller starring Adrian Lester and John Simm, Hatton Garden, from Bafta award-winning writer Jeff Pope and Age Before Beauty, a contemporary drama from Mainstreet Pictures.
