COMING FROM MICHAEL HIRST?
I must admit Quibi, the upcoming new short video platform, confuses me as they keep ordering scripted series, but the news today is that they've just
ordered CHARLE MAGNE epic series from Tudors and Vikings creator Michael Hirst. The story of the new series will be based on the 8th century wild life of Charles the Great, king of the Franks, king of the Lombards and the emperor of the Romans, who united Western Europe in Early Middle Ages amidst navigating a salacious, complicated personal life. He was married at least four times, had three illegitimate sons and has spent more than fifty years ruling as king or emperor. Of course, I'm not sure how much we can trust this would see the light of the day as Hirst has announced so many projects in recent years and none of them has happened in the end, from Vikings spin off, then The Caesars, to new Doctor Zhivago.
