Holy smoke! (Kingsbridge & Salcombe Gazette, 12 avril 2010).
It is hoped the TV series will be shown on a primary channel. It has a star-studded cast including Donald Sutherland, Sarah Parish and Matthew MacFadyen.

Scott Free, Tandem team on 'World' (Variety, 13 avril 2010).

BERLIN — Scott Free and Tandem Communications are re-teaming on a miniseries adaptation of Ken Follett's "World Without End," the sequel to "The Pillars of the Earth."

"Pillars" writer John Pielmeier is returning to adapt the bestseller for a possible eight-hour series. Starz, which is airing "Pillars" in July, has agreed to co-finance development with Tandem and has an option for U.S. rights to the project.

"Broadcasters worldwide understand that once you have captivated an audience, you must reward their loyalty by building on the franchise," said Tandem topper Rola Bauer. "'World Without End' allows us to give our partners on 'The Pillars of the Earth' that next part of the franchise."

Set in the same medieval town of Kingsbridge but taking place 200 years later, "World Without End" unfolds against the backdrop of scourge and pestilence as Europe is plunged into the Hundred Years' War and enveloped by the Black Death. Featuring descendants of the original characters, the story follows four of the town's residents whose lives are shaped and twisted by a violent and mysterious childhood incident as they journey through turbulent times and ultimately reunited again by ambition, greed, love and revenge.

"We were impressed by the quality and ambitions Tandem and Scott Free brought to 'The Pillars of the Earth,'" said Starz topper Chris Albrecht. "We expect the same, if not more, with the 'World Without End' adaptation, and hope it can be developed into another event series for Starz in the U.S."

Added Scott Free Television prexy David W. Zucker: "The production values on 'Pillars' are comparable to what we would expect in a feature. With the now long-standing relationship between Tandem and Scott Free, it makes perfect sense to seek out an opportunity to extend that spectacular quality to more of Ken Follett's great storytelling and John Pielmeier's wonderful adaptation."

The book has sold more than five million copies worldwide since its release in 2007, spending 30 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List.

"World Without End" is the latest joint project from Scott Free and Tandem. In addition to the $40 million "Pillars," the companies are also producing an adaptation of Robert Harris' historical novel "Pompeii" with Sony Pictures Television.

For Starz, "World Without End" is yet another new historical property; the pay cabler just announced it was developing the medieval period drama "William the Conqueror" with Ben Silverman's Electus.


On prend les mêmes et on recommence (bis repetita).

Tandem options Ken Follett’s World Without End, the international bestseller sequel to The Pillars of the Earth, to develop as an event series, with Scott Free Television (Tandem Communications, 13 avril 2010).

Channel 4 nabs 'Pillars of the Earth' (Variety, 10 juin 2010).
BERLIN -- The U.K.'s Channel 4 has picked up the miniseries adaptation of Ken Follett's bestselling "The Pillars of the Earth" from Munich-based Tandem Communications.
Directed by Sergio Mimica-Gezzan ("Heroes"), the $40 million, eight-hour mini, starring Ian McShane, Hayley Atwell ("Captain America"), Rufus Sewell and Donald Sutherland, is set in 12th-century England against a backdrop of war, political turmoil and religious strife and follows the building of a Gothic cathedral in the fictional town of Kingsbridge.

Produced by Tandem and Montreal-based Muse Entertainment in association with Scott Free Films, "Pillars" airs in the U.S. on Starz this summer. The series also pre-sold early on to Germany's ProSiebenSat.1, Canada's CBC and the Movie Network, Spain's Sogecable, Hungary's TV2 and ORF in Austria, and Stateside to Sony Pictures Home Entertainment for DVD.

"Epic in scale and ambitious in its storytelling, this miniseries is sure to spellbind viewers and is the perfect addition to our acquired programs," said Channel 4's Tim Highsted.

Exec producer and Scott Free chairman Ridley Scott added: "It was always our intention to make 'Pillars' fresh and accessible to modern-day audiences -- nothing stuffy here. Channel 4 has always been on the cutting edge, which makes this a wonderful match."

The Pillars of the Earth on Channel 4 (Ken Follett).
Channel 4 has acquired the UK premiere broadcast rights to the eight-hour television adaptation of The Pillars Of The Earth. It will make its UK debut on Channel 4 after it airs in the United States on the Starz channel on Friday 23 July.

“I might be prejudiced, but finding the right network for Pillars in the UK was very important for me, says Ken. "Channel Four’s profile and image is a perfect fit for a story with such broad appeal. I know we are in good hands.”
