His Dark Materials to be made into a BBC Drama
Posted on by Jaya

The BBC have announced that they’re working with New Line Cinema to create a new television series based on the His Dark Materials trilogy. 

Pullman intends to be involved in the making of the series and mentioned he was delighted with the plan to tell the story in a new medium, saying, “It’s been a constant source of pleasure to me to see this story adapted to different forms.”

His Dark Materials is the first commission from Bad Wolf, a UK/US production company founded by Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner and co-sited in South Wales and Los Angeles and is New Line Cinema’s first move into British television.

His Dark Materials will be Executive Produced by Philip Pullman, Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner for Bad Wolf, Toby Emmerich and Carolyn Blackwood for New LineCinema, Bethan Jones for BBC One and Deborah Forte for Scholastic.

    Isso realmente está acontecendo? Não acredito nisso.
    Fez tempo que venho buscando informações acerca de novas produções baseadas na série.
    Estou muito feliz 🙂
    Agora só falta o Phillip anunciar a data de lançamento do Livro do Pó.

    I’m excited…….although I feel that, for better or for worse, “The Subtle Knife” and “The Amber Spyglass” aren’t really filmable- What I think would rock is if they make a series of new stories set in the “Dark Materials” Universe.
