Fellowes Pens TITANIC TV Series For ITV!

By on 22 March, 2011

Downton Abbey‘ and ‘Gosford Park‘ writer Julian Fellowes is creating a TV series about the Titanic – to mark the centenary anniversary of the ship’s demise!

The Oscar winner has devised a six-part period drama, due to begin filming in Hungary in Spring 2011, and will follow both fictional and historical characters onboard the doomed liner, which builders believed was unsinkable.

Bosses behind the show insist viewers will be taken on “a heart-wrenching journey through Titanic’s last hours”.

Maria Kyriacou, managing director at ITV Studios Global Entertainment, believes the amazing talent behind the production team will make this project a true success.

She says:

“The fantastic pedigree of the production talent behind this major series has generated huge interest from our global broadcast clients and we are very pleased to announce these new partners today. Providing a vividly different experience of the ship’s last hours alongside a definitive snapshot of what was a unique and uncertain moment in history.”

James Cameron won 11 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, for his 1997 epic movie ‘Titanic‘, which told the story of the luxury liner that sank after hitting an iceberg on its maiden voyage across the Atlantic in 1912.

The show is set to air on ITV in the U.K., ABC in the U.S. and Channel Seven in Australia.

Titanic‘ is a UK/Hungary/Canada co-production and will be produced by Nigel Stafford-Clark and Chris Thompson.
