'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
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.
|The number of episodes is not yet known|
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.
