New TV show based on Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series
BBC America is developing a show based on The City Watch collection from the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett. As previously reported by Empire Online, the show will consist of eight episodes and will feature several famous Discworld creations – including Pratchett’s iconic personification of Death.
Terry Pratchett’s work will also be coming to screens next year via a different production. The adaptation of Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s co-written novel, Good Omens, is expected to air in 2019 and will star David Tennant as the demon, Crowley, and Michael Sheen in the role of the angel Aziraphale.
There have been rumours about a City Watch TV show for years. The show will be made by Narrativia, the company Pratchett began in 2012 to manage the rights to all of his books. Pratchett sadly passed away in 2015, at the age of 66.
First pics from the set of The Woman in the Window!
Filming in underway for The Woman in the Window – the upcoming film based on the bestselling novel of the same name by A.J. Finn.
Check out these pics from the set of the movie, which stars Adam Adams in the leading role. Fittingly, the first pics show the main character, Anna North (a woman) standing in … you guessed it … a window!
The Woman in the Window was published last year and has become an international success. A highly addictive and stylish noir thriller channeling some wonderful Hitchock vibes, it has been likened to other bestselling psychological thrillers such as Gone Girl, and The Girl on the Train.
Alongside Amy Adams in the lead role, the film adaptation will also star Julianne Moore and Gary Oldman.
