COSMO JARVIS, HIROYUKI SANADA TO LEAD SHOGUN EPIC TV SERIES AT FX! VICTORIAN COOKERY NOVEL MISS ELIZA'S ENGLISH KITCHEN TO BECOME TV SERIES!

  COSMO JARVIS TO LEAD  
FX' SHOGUN EPIC TV SERIES
We thought this one was scraped three years ago, but it seems it is alive and kicking: Cosmo Jarvis (whom we watched in Lady Macbeth and Raised
Cosmo Jarvis will take the lead role
by Wolves) and Hiroyuki Sanada will be two of the three leads in SHOGUN TV series adaptation over at FX set in feudal Japan. Based on James Clavell's novel, it depicts the collision of two ambitious men from different worlds and a mysterious female samurai: John Blackthorne (Cosmo Jarvis), a risk taking English sailor who ends up shipwrecked in Japan, a land whose unfamiliar culture will ultimately redefine him; Lord Toranaga (Hiroyuki Sanada), a shrewd, powerful daimyo, at odds with his own dangerous, political rivals; and Lady Mariko, a woman with invaluable skills but dishonorable family ties who must prove her value and allegiance. The series is set to shoot as soon as this summer.

MISS ELIZA'S ENGLISH KITCHEN
TO BECOME A TV SERIES
This one hasn't even been published yet (it is out this Autumn) but Annabel Abbs's Victorian novel of cookery and friendship MISS ELIZA'S ENGLISH KITCHEN has been nabbed by CBS for a TV series adaptation!
The book is out in bookstores this Autumn
The book tells the story of an English poet, Eliza Acton, who dreams of seeing her words in print. However, when she takes her new manuscript to a publisher, she’s told that “poetry is not the business of a lady.” Instead, they want her to write a cookery book.England in 1837 is awash with exciting new ingredients, from spices to exotic fruits, and that’s what publishers want from women. Despite never having cooked, Eliza is determined to learn. To assist her, she hires 17-year-old Ann Kirby, the impoverished daughter of a war-crippled father and a mother with dementia. Over the course of 10 years, Eliza and Ann develop an unusual friendship that crosses social classes. Together, they break the mold of traditional cookbooks, changing the course of cookery writing forever. Abbs was inspired to write the book after she inherited a collection of antiquarian cookery books

  1. That must be an amazing book if it got a movie deal before the novel was even released!

    1. It is interesting that it will have an entirely different title, release date and even cover over in UK.

    1. A new version, but the original was thirty or more years ago when we were little kids.
