ITV commissions 13-part epic warrior drama Beowulf

ITV has commissioned thirteen-part drama Beowulf, an epic re-imagining of one of literature’s greatest and most enduring heroes.

Created by James Dormer, Tim Haines and Katie Newman, this action-packed series is set in the mythical Shieldlands, a place of spectacle and danger populated by both humans and fantastical creatures.

Essentially, a western set in the Dark Ages of Britain’s mythic past, the story unfolds on a huge canvas, filmed amongst the breathtaking beauty of England's North East.

The first episode sees Beowulf who, after spending many years wandering as a mercenary warrior, returns to Herot to pay his respects to the recently deceased Thane, Hrothgar - the man who raised him. But when Herot is attacked by the terrifying monster Grendl, Beowulf has no choice but to hunt it down, winning favour with Herot’s new female Thane, and the wider community, in the process.

And so begins a personal journey that sees this mighty and capable man slowly reconnect with the notion of family and home.

Beowulf is a series about courage, greed, betrayal, revenge, loyalty, power, man versus wilderness and, of course love. It is a series that explores the notion of good and evil, heroes and villians. However, beyond these wider political undercurrents and inner personal turmoils are the excitement, danger and sense of adventure that any great Western has. Epic fights, thrilling chases, raids, celebrations and battles are an essential part of the promise.

James Dormer (Strike Back, Wallander, Outcast) who will write and executive produce said:

“Hundreds of years ago our ancestors listened to the story of Beowulf because it was a great adventure story - it scared them, thrilled them, made them laugh and cry. But they also listened because they recognised themselves and their fears in it. By holding a mirror up to them this story helped define them and thus - us. So it’s incredibly exciting to have the opportunity to make it relevant again for a wide audience - to let them own it again. To let them see themselves in it.”

ITV Studios’ Creative Director of Drama Tim Haines (Primeval, Sinbad, Defying Gravity) will executive produce with ITV Studios’ Executive Producer of Drama Katie Newman (Primeval: New World).

Stephen Smallwood (Ripper Street, The Day of the Triffids, DCI Banks) will produce on location in County Durham and Northumberland. The Production's choice to use the spectacular locations available in Durham and Northumberland has been encouraged by the enthusiastic support of the various Councils of the North East.

Beowulf has been commissioned for ITV by Director of Drama Steve November and Controller of Drama Victoria Fea.

“Beowulf is a series with a charismatic protagonist at its heart,” said Steve. “Equally it’s a spirited and fascinating ensemble drama with each character taking their own emotional and sometimes perilous journey. We’re delighted to be commissioning Beowulf and to be working with Tim Haines and his production team,” he added.

Filming will begin in the North East in April 2015 for transmission on ITV. There are no casting details presently.

Christina Hendricks Joins the Cast of the New Showtime(R) Pilot "Roadies"


One-Hour COMEDY Pilot To Shoot In Vancouver In Early 2015

NEW YORK, NY - December 15, 2014 - Five-time Emmy(R) Award nominee Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) will star in the new SHOWTIME pilot ROADIES, which follows the day-to-day life of a successful rock tour as seen through the eyes of music's unsung heroes - the crew members who get the show on the road. Christina Hendricks will portray "Shelli," the band's production manager - Bill's (Luke Wilson) ingenious work partner, tough, but privately emotional, married to her job... and scary-good at it. Luke Wilson (Old School, The Royal Tenenbaums), Imogen Poots (The Look of Love), Rafe Spall (One Day), Peter Cambor (NCIS: Los Angeles) and Academy Award(R) nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes (Whale Rider) were previously announced as stars of the ensemble cast. The one-hour comedy pilot will shoot in Vancouver in early 2015.

ROADIES follows a hot-ticket tour, but with a simple twist: the band is in the background and the roadies take the spotlight. It's an inside look at the reckless, romantic, funny and often poignant lives of a committed group of characters who live for music and the de facto family they've formed along the way. Oscar(R) winner Cameron Crowe wrote and will direct and executive produce the pilot (for a potential series). Emmy and Tony(R) nominee Winnie Holzman (My So-Called Life, Wicked, Huge), will executive produce and serve as showrunner, along with executive producers Emmy winners J.J. Abrams (Lost, Fringe, Person of Interest) and Bryan Burk (Lost, Fringe, Person of Interest). Kathy Lingg (Person of Interest, Fringe) is co-executive producer. ROADIES is produced by Bad Robot Productions, Vinyl Films and Dooley & Company Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Five-time Emmy Award nominee Christina Hendricks is best known for her tour de force performance as "Joan Harris" on Mad Men. Hendricks' feature film credits include Drive, Ginger & Rosa, I Don't Know How She Does It, Detachment and Life as We Know It. She will next be seen in Dark Places, opposite Charlize Theron, Chlo� Grace Moretz and Nicholas Hoult, and in John Slattery's Sundance film God's Pocket opposite the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. Hendricks also stars in the lead role in Ryan Gosling's directorial debut, Lost River, which recently premiered at the Cannes International Film Festival.
