GORGEOUS NICHOLAS SPARKS MOVIE 'THE BEST OF ME' POSTER WITH JAMES MARSDEN! WW2 TV SERIES 'JAMBUSTERS' FOR ITV! FOX CANCELS 'HIEROGLYPH' EGYPTIAN SERIES! 'SNOWBLIND' HORROR BOOK TO BECOME TV MINI SERIES

WW2 'JAMBUSTERS' NOVEL
 TO BE TURNED INTO TV SERIES
While we are marking a century from the beginning of World War One, ITV has announced today their work on a six episode TV series on World War Two based on Julie Summers' bestseller JAMBUSTERS! The drama follows a group of inspirational women with fantastic spirit and attitude in a rural Cheshire community. With World War II on the horizon, multiple strands of plot interweave to create a period drama full of jeopardy and intrigue, but also great humanity and modernity. The idea is to hire some of the greatest UK actresses in the cast!

'SNOWBLIND' HORROR NOVEL
TO BE MADE INTO MINI TV SERIES
In other television news today, Universal TV has teamed up with DA VINCI'S DEMONS' David S. Goyer in adapting bestselling horror novel SNOWBLIND by Christopher Golden into television mini series. The New England set book, published earlier this year by St. Martin’s Press, tracks the denizens of a town still reeling from the disappearance of more than a dozen people who were snatched during a sinister snowstorm 12 years prior. The novel was highly praised by Stephen King who called it deeply scary and brilliant.
'HIEROGLYPH' CANCELLED BY FOX
In sad TV news, it was announced today that Fox has cancelled HIEROGLYPH TV series which was supposed to air this Autumn, even though the Ancient Egypt set show had been ordered for a whole season. Fox says that the look of the first episode didn't match their vision. The show was supposed to star Max Brown, Jonathan Rhys Davies and Reece Ritchie.

  1. At least Fox didn't let HIEROGLYPH go a full season get a following then cancel it.

    6. I've never understood how could those people be so violent, rude and angry if they work in the empire of food and sweets?

  2. Wow, what a disappointment for the cast and crew of Hieroglyph. Cancelled before you even get on air. I'm guessing it was probably a very expensive show to produce.

  4. Too bad about HIEROGLYPH. I know people had concerns about the apparent white-washing of Egyptian history, but skin colour aside, I liked the casting and was looking forward to it.

  6. Cool beans for Golden. Haven't seen his name out in about in awhile. But then, I don't visit many media-related blogs. Why would I? When there's everything I need right here at The Hollywood Spy.

  8. We had Women's Institutes here in Canada too. My grandma was a member for many years. Such organizations have all gone the way of the dodo bird now, of course.

  9. I bet there's some drama behind the scenes of Heiroglyph to warrant Fox cancelling it before it even aired. Sounds like to me that someone didn't get a blowjob on an office couch.

  10. It's funny--I'm reading "Gone" now and I thought the same thing I thought while reading the synopsis for "Snowblind." They both sound like Stephen King stories! He praised "Gone," as well. So every time something seems to be a ripoff of Stephen King, he praises it!

  18. Now Jambusters is the one I'm into. I do like the stories of how people made it through the War. The little things they cherished and the way they came together to help one another out in bleak times are so important.
