EMILY BEECHAM TO LEAD SPOOKY GOTHIC PERIOD SET SERIES 1899 OVER AT NETFLIX SET ON A DOOMED STEAMSHIP! HOLIDAY AND LIFE AFTER LIFE NOVELS TO BECOME SERIES AT CHANNEL 5 AND BBC

   EMILY BEECHAM TO LEAD  
1899 PERIOD SET SERIES
Emily Beecham will board the steamship
But it will be a period set horror, I must emphasize. Netflix has cast Into the Badlands star Emily Beecham as the first name in the cast for their period set horror drama 1899 which will be shot in eight episodes. Although it will be an English language series, it will use other languages as well due to the plot, which revolves around a migrant steamship heading from London to New York a year before the 20th century. When the passengers discover another migrant boat adrift, their journey descends into horrifying nightmare! Baran Bo Odar and Jantje Friese, who created Dark series for Netflix, are behind this one as well. It will be a European show with a mixed cast from different countries. At its heart is the question of what unites us and what divides us. You will see Beecham first next to Emma Stone in Cruella origins movie which is going straight to Disney+ thanks to Covid. 

  CHANNEL 5 TO ADAPT  
THE HOLIDAY INTO MINI SERIES
Speaking of horrors, a horror of a different kind will be seen in Channel 5's four part mini series THE HOLIDAY to be made based on T. M. Logan's popular best seller! Michael Crompton is adapting the story
Michael Crompton will adapt The Holiday for Channel 5
about a woman who discovers her husband is having an affair on the first day of a holiday with their closest friends. The vacation soon becomes a nightmare as she suspects one of her friends of being involved in the tryst!

  BBC TO TURN LIFE AFTER LIFE  
INTO A FOUR PART TV SERIES
Rival BBC is, meanwhile, set to make their own four part TV series out of Kate Atkinson's novel LIFE AFTER LIFE which is set to shoot next spring telling the vivid story of the alternate lives of Ursula Todd, who dies one night
Kate Atkinson's book will be adapted for BBC
in 1910, only to be born and survive on the same night. She finds herself time and again, living and dying in different circumstances only to be reborn into a new, alternative iteration of life once more. Her journey spans two World Wars and an encounter with Hitler.

  1. Of all of these, the first one is the most intriguing for me. Maybe it's because Supernatural has left me, but I'm all for a period set horror show! How is Emily Beecham as an actress?

    1. She is very nice, she used to retweet us back in the days when she was younger :) She fought battles in super high heels in Into the Badlands LOL

  2. To be born and born again and remember it all would be quite interesting.

    What hell to be stuck on holiday suspecting your spouse cheating with someone in your group of friends. I suspect she'll be on holiday by herself next year.
