Forsyth and Objective Fiction previously worked together on RTS Award-nominated BBC drama Eric, Ernie and Me, about the iconic British comedians Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise.
Forsyth said: “I’ve always enjoyed working with Objective, who have been a supportive creative partner for many years. This is a really exciting opportunity, and I can’t wait to get going.”
Objective Fiction chief creative officer Ben Farrell added: “Neil is a creative force. A superb writer who absolutely understands the way the TV industry operates, both nationally and internationally.”
