A new series based on H. Rider Haggard’s Allan Quatermain books are coming to the small screen, says the Hollywood Reporter.
Sonar Entertainment and Ecosse Films have teamed up for the $30 million, 10-part action-adventure series with writers Richard Kurti and Bez Doyle on board to pen the script.
“It’s an incredible character from a range of best selling books,” said Stewart Till, CEO of Sonar Entertainment. “I read all the books as a child and it is something that many Brits have grown up with. It’s also the kind of high-concept adventure that broadcasters are looking for.”
The show is expected to shoot in Africa.
