Variety reports that BBC's A Poet In New York starring Tom Hollander has been acquired by BBC America and will premiere in the Fall.
BBC America has acquired the film “A Poet in New York,” starring Tom Hollander. Hollander plays Dylan Thomas, the famous poet known for his wild, hard-drinking lifestyle. Written by screenwriter Andrew Davies (“House of Cards”), the drama explores how Thomas’ experiences made his life virtually untenable and examines how his destructive personality played into his own demise. The film is directed by Aisling Walsh and also stars Essie Davis, as Dylan’s wife Caitlin, Ewen Bremner and Phoebe Fox. The film will premiere in the U.S. this fall on BBC America.

A Poet In New York 
In 1953 Dylan Thomas went to New York for the last time, his marriage a wreck, his drinking out of control. He was on his way to meet Stravinsky and to wallow in New York acclaim - but what was he escaping? How did such a triumph become a requiem? The last days of a great poet.
