   NEW PRODUCTION OUTFIT  
ANNOUNCES A WHOLE SLATE OF NEW EPIC TV SHOWS
Daniel Defoe's novel will become a series
Legendary Entertainment has launched the joint venture production company Watford & Essex with White Princess and White Queen producers Emma Frost and Matthew Graham, and has announced development of 10 projects, among which are: VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA (a remake of the 1960 adventure series to be penned by Chris Lunt and Michael Walker), ROXANA (dark and funny parable about female identity, adapted by Emma Frost from Daniel Defoe's epic novel), MATILDA (Medieval female driven political adventure series created by Matthew Graham)! Fingers crossed none of these projects will be like Frost and Graham's current ultimate flop Spanish Princess.

  1. The last trailer I watched for Black Narcissus was without sound so it didn't make much sense. Now that I watched it with sound, it makes much more sense. LOL
