Among the programmes is a three-part adaptation of the Charles Dickens novel Great Expectations, which is expected to air at Christmas.
The project has been written by Sarah Phelps, who previously penned the BBC's Oliver Twist.
Meanwhile, Spooks and Hustle producers Kudos will work on a new eight-part drama called Morton, which focuses on a spy called Sam. Sam has been pursued all of her life but eventually decides to confront her past.
Elsewhere, Upstairs Downstairs and Cranford scribe Heidi Thomas has adapted Jennifer Worth's memoir Call The Midwife for a six-part series. The show follows new midwife Jenny as she joins a community of nursing nuns.
Other shows include the four-part drama One Night, which focuses on four people whose lives become linked on a hot summer night. Each episode centres on one of the characters. Meanwhile, Secret Diary Of A Call Girl scribe Julie Geary has penned Bound, a six-part series which follows a group of women whose partners have ended up in prison.
BBC One's controller Danny Cohen said: "I hope that these commissions begin to express the range and creative ambition we want BBC One drama to capture in the coming years. There are great opportunities here for new writers, as well as a new commitment to blue-collar drama, and classic period pieces."
