MASSIVE WW2 EPIC TV SERIES ROADS TO FREEDOM FROM RIDLEY SCOTT, STEVEN KNIGHT! SHOWTIME, ANTOINE FUQUA PREPARING SHAKA: KING OF THE ZULU NATION EPIC TV SERIES

  ROADS TO FREEDOM SERIES 
UNITES RIDLEY SCOTT & STEVEN KNIGHT IN A MASSIVE ENDEVOUR
Two epic series for you today, first up, a collaboration between Ridley Scott and Steven Knight on a massive ten episode WW2 saga ROADS TO FREEDOM based on the war books by Anthony Beevor, translated in more
Russia, France, Crete are just some of the countries in the books
than 30 languages. While most Hollywood war projects focus on the American and British effort, this global project will portray the brutal realities from multiple viewpoints, with characters also from Russia, Germany, France and other countries across the globe. That includes women, and children struggling to survive. The emphasis is on humanity, the characters bound together by one dramatic story. Some of the story lines will be discomforting, but heroic, and the race between East and West to capture Berlin will shed light on what became the foundations of the Cold War.

  SHAKA: KING OF ZULU NATION  
SERIES ORDERED BY SHOWTIME
If you're as old as your spy, you probably remember a Shaka Zulu series from the 80s, and now we're getting a new one: as Deadline reports, Antoine
Antoine Fuqua will direct the epic series
Fuqua has joined Showtime in the creation of SHAKA: KING OF THE ZULU NATION series about the Zulu Empire chief Shaka and his unlikely rise to power, uniting multiple tribes across vast stretches of Africa in the early 19th century to transform his power into legend, on par with history’s most seminal figures. In ferocious battles that test the body and soul, in alliances that test the bonds of love and friendship, a complex sociological system plays out that renders the human cost front and center, for the victors as well as the vanquished, all in an effort to carve out a semblance of identity, fulfillment and ultimately, survival.

  1. The last thing I've watched about/set in Russia is that limited Web TV series Chernobyl. 🙂

    And... it was good! 👍🏻

    1. And probably filled with Western propaganda and lies as well :)

  2. I like that the emphasis is on humanity and not just killing people/acts of war. I'm sure Jason will add Roads to Freedom to his watch list and it's one I'll be sure to watch with him.

    1. I will watch it as well, I like it that it will focus on other resistance armies not just US and UK ones. I don't expect they will cover Partisans from my country, but they might cover Russia, Greece, Spain etc.

  3. It's always sadden me deeply to see so much brutality and violence...so not really fancy for war movies.

  4. Roads to Freedom sounds like something I'd mark on my calendar and set a date with the TV to watch. WW2 is one story with so many different views. I've read two books from the German side, one from the Russian side, and one from the French..countless from the British side..and none from the American side!
