Telemark - FX orders WWII Miniseries from Danny Boyle, Simon Beaufoy and Christian Colson

FX has teamed with Danny Boyle, Simon Beaufoy and Christian Colson, the Oscar-winning director-writer-producer team behind Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours, for a 10-part miniseries. Written by Beaufoy, Telemark is based on the true story of the British-trained Norwegian resistance fighters who sabotaged Hitler’s nuclear development program during World War II. “This is one of the world’s greatest stories and we want to tell it on an epic scale,” Boyle said. Telemark, produced by Cloud Eight/Decibel Films, marks Boyle, Beaufoy and Colson’s first project for American television. Danny Boyle, Beaufoy and Colson all won Oscars for Slumdog Millionaire — Boyle for directing, Beaufoy for writing and Colson shared in the best picture win as a producer.
