Titanic – the mini series
Everyone seems to want to mark the 100th year anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic I’m afraid. I sincerely apologise to all of those who visit my blog to purely look at the Titanic – Adventure Out of Time content. This year seems to have quite a lot of slightly off-topic posts. Yet there will be more content on the game soon I promise!
On Christmas day last year ITV1, one of the main television broadcasters in the UK aired a trailer of their upcoming new mini-series involving the Titanic. It is a UK/Hungary/Canada co-production and will be produced by Nigel Stafford-Clark and Chris Thompson and due to officially air in the UK in April 2012 to mark the centenary anniversary of the sinking of the ocean liner.
It has been written by Julian Fellowes, who is better attributed to his period drama ‘Downton Abbey’, which has aired world-wide since its creation in 2010.
There will be four 1-hour long episodes which will present viewers with a combination of mystery, action and romance narratives. The huge cast of 89 characters will be a mix of fact and fiction and will focus on passengers from all social backgrounds and varying national identities. Each episode is said to focus on different characters and ITV state that
“Each point of view will culminate in a cliffhanger as the ship begins to founder, building to an explosive conclusion which draws together each of the stories.”
The trailer can be seen below. As far as I know the drama will also be shown in ABC in the US and Channel Seven in Australia..
I wonder whether this will prove a hit among audiences? Or is that too much a bad pun?
