Heep Heep Hooray! We will get yet another historical TV series!!! As "The Hollywood Reporter" reports Sony Pictures TV will make a miniseries based on Robert Harris' bestseller "Pompeii". The project was originally meant for the big screen with Roman Polanski as a director, but it will now become a TV miniseries described as both a love story and a thriller, with the historical, apocalyptic backdrop of a city on the precipice of destruction and characters who are totally relatable to a contemporary audience. "Pompeii" shall focus on an aqueduct engineer named Marcus Attilius. He finds himself fighting time to keep the military and trade ports on the Naples Bay alive. He doesn't realize that he's also up against one of the deadliest forces of nature.
