Me+You Acquires Life Rights to Daisy’s Law Story


Me+You Productions has acquired the life rights to the true story behind the creation of Daisy’s Law in the U.K.

Daisy, whose true identity is still protected for legal reasons, led a relentless campaign toward enabling children born of rape to be recognized as victims. The story of her battle for justice is set to be told in a drama miniseries entitled Kin (w.t.).

The adopted woman sought justice for herself and her biological mother, who was raped as a teenager by her biological father. Kin includes the latest chapter in Daisy’s life, following along as she travels to the Caribbean and uncovers her family tree for the first time.

Emma Dennis-Edwards (Consent) is writing the script for the drama. She has also written for Candice Carty-Williams’s Champion.

More projects from Me+You include Close to You, starring Elliot Page in his first film role since coming out as a transgender man, and the eight-part drama Alice & Jack. Both are set to premiere at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival.

Krishnendu Majumdar, co-founder of Me+You, said: “Daisy is a truly inspirational woman. I don’t think people will believe that she actually tracked down and went to visit her birth father for the first time. She rang the bell, and they talked inside his home for 45 minutes. It is jaw-dropping. I’ve been amazed by her eloquence and resilience.

“We are really excited about working with Emma and Daisy on Kin. We are passionate about telling stories that matter, stories that say something about society. We feel privileged that Daisy has trusted us to tell this extraordinary story about how one woman accepted her devastating origins and found the courage to fight for justice. It’s about resilience, family and knowing who you are.”
