Danny Boyle will direct a police drama for Channel 4 called Babylon

Olympic opening ceremony mastermind Danny Boyle will direct a police drama written by the people behind Peep Show.

Boyle, who turned down a knighthood after his work on London's highly praised £27 million Olympic opening ceremony, made his name with Trainspotting which starred Ewan McGregor as an Edinburgh junkie.
