'We'll Take Manhattan' will be shown on BBC4 later this year.
The BBC said of the film: "Focusing on a wild and unpredictable 1962 Vogue photo shoot in New York, John McKay's drama brings to life the story of two young people falling in love, misbehaving, and inadvertently defining the style of the Sixties along the way.
"Set predominantly in 1962 but also exploring the story of how Bailey and Shrimpton first met, this one-off drama reveals how a young, visionary photographer refused to conform. He insisted on using the unconventional model Jean Shrimpton on an important photo shoot for British Vogue and, over the course of a freezing week in Manhattan threw out the rule book and made startling, original photographs.
"'We'll Take Manhattan' is the story of that wild week, of Bailey and Jean's love affair, and of how two young people accidentally changed the world forever."
