Allan Quatermain books coming to the small screen

April 3rd, 2012 by bash Comments

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.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
