A Discovery of Witches Television Update–from me:
As some of you might have seen, there is news on the television adaptation of A Discovery of Witches and the rest of the All Souls Trilogy.
Jane Tranter and Bad Wolf will be producing the series, with Ashley Pharoah adapting the books and serving as executive producer. I will also be an executive producer, and will write several episodes.
Jane and Ashley represent my dream team for bringing the trilogy to life. Every conversation we have had about the books shows how thoroughly they understand the All Souls World and how deeply they’re committed to creating something very special with this series. A glance at the projects they’ve been involved with—including the reboot of Dr. Who, Life on Mars, Case Histories, Waking the Dead, MI5/Spooks, Torchwood, David Copperfield, Silent Witness, Ashes to Ashes, The Way We Live Now, and Rome—makes it clear that Jane and Ashley are drawn to compelling characters and storylines with twists that keep viewers tuning in for each new episode.
At the moment we are unable to confirm the involvement of a broadcaster, either in the US or the UK, though we hope to make this announcement soon.
In the meantime, I know you will give Jane and Ashley your full support and encouragement as they tackle this huge undertaking.
