MAMMOTH SCREEN AND ITV ADAPTING LINDSEY DAVIS FALCO NOVELS ON ROMAN ERA PRIVATE DETECTIVE AND IMPERIAL AGENT INTO A TV SERIES

   'FALCO' ROMAN SAGA
TO BECOME NEW ITV SERIES
I know that some of you like detective series and some of you historical ones, but what would you say about a series that follows a private detective
The number of episodes is not yet known
in Ancient Rome? That is what Poldark's and Victoria's Mammoth Screen is currently doing for British ITV: they are going to adapt Lindsey Davis FALCO novels into a TV show which was originally supposed to be done over at rival BBC.

Started back in 1989 with The Silver Pigs each of the twenty novels tells a self contained story about Marcus Didius Falco, a fictional Roman private detective who investigates crimes and acts as an often reluctant imperial agent. As Deadline reports, Falco is described as a laid-back operator whose adventures take place across the Roman Empire in 70 AD and beyond. As the books progress, Falco gets married, has children and acquires a dog named Nux.

  1. The poster is a bit boring. I'll wait for the trailer to see if it piques my interest.

    3. Book cover, poster... either way I still think it's boring to look at. He does look like a Roman Superman, but then again, I am not intrigued by Superman either LOL

    5. Well, that's an altogether different story then. Henry Cavill can definitely spice up the most boring of things!
