THE EVENING AND THE MORNING
KEN FOLLETT'S EPIC NOVEL TO BE ADAPTED INTO TV SERIES
While Epix is preparing a series adaptation of A Column of Fire, the third book in his Kingsbridge series (with first two parts, Pillars of the Earth and World Without End already adapted previous decade), Ken Follett's new
book THE EVENING AND THE MORNING, the prequel to the whole series, will be adapted by Legendary TV.
|Legendary TV will turn the book into series|
EVENING AND THE MORNING takes place in 997 CE, the end of the Dark Ages. England is facing attacks from the Welsh in the west and the Vikings in the east. Those in power bend justice according to their will, regardless of ordinary people and often in conflict with the king. Without a clear rule of law, chaos reigns. In these turbulent times, three characters find their lives intertwined. A young boatbuilder’s life is turned upside down when the only home he’s ever known is raided by Vikings, forcing him and his family to move and start their lives anew in a small hamlet where he does not fit in. A Norman noblewoman marries for love, following her husband across the sea to a new land, but the customs of her husband’s
homeland are shockingly different, and
as she begins to realize that everyone around her is engaged in a
constant, brutal battle for power, it becomes clear that a single
misstep could be catastrophic. A monk dreams of transforming his humble
abbey into a center of learning that will be admired throughout Europe.
And each in turn comes into dangerous conflict with a clever and
ruthless bishop who will do anything to increase his wealth and power.
