House of Cards author Lord Michael Dobbs is working on a new television drama with Borgen creator Adam Price in what he called "a very major project".

The Conservative peer, whose political thriller was adapted into a BBC television series and more recently an American version starring Kevin Spacey, said the collaboration is expected to hit screens in 2014.

Lord Dobbs said he believed British political drama has not been on top form lately, but said it was by no means dead.

Speaking on The World This Weekend on BBC Radio 4, he said: "I think it's gone through a period where perhaps it hasn't hit the high spots, but I have to say I'm very excited.

"Adam Price is the creator of Borgen - that wonderful Danish political drama, and he and I have got together and we are now working on a very major project which hopefully will be on BBC screens next year.

"House of Cards meets Borgen, I mean it's a pretty good pedigree."
