Production firm Tandem Communications, located in Munich, has bought the tv-rights for "The Pillars of the Earth" by Ken Follett.
They want to make an eight hour series out of it.
I'm crossing my fingers here, as the book is one of my all time favourites (I re-read it about once a year) and hope that they will be able to adapt it well.
As is always the case with books made in to film, they will not meet the expectations of some and will meet the expectations of others.
I just hope for the best...
