BritBox gives the go-ahead to three new Agatha Christie adaptations.

BritBox has commissioned three more Agatha Christie adaptations as it continues its push into original content.

In April the streaming service will release the Christie drama Why Didn't They Ask Evans?, starring Emma Thompson and Will Poulter with direction from Hugh Laurie.

The project is the first collaboration with Agatha Christie Limited - a media company run by the author's great grandson - and now the streamer has given the go-ahead to three more adaptations.

"I am thrilled to be continuing our relationship with Agatha Christie Limited and Mammoth Screen for three more adaptations of Agatha Christie's mysteries," said Emily Powers, head of BritBox North America.

"I look forward to working with each creative team to bring a new unique perspective to Christie's incredible stories."

BritBox has also confirmed that '60s-set crime series Sister Boniface Mysteries will return for a second season.
