PERIOD SET SERIES IN WORKS
Stratton Leopold and Dax Phelan are, as Deadline reports, preparing an untitled mini series based on an infamous 19th-century prison escape known as The Catalpa Expedition. Set in Ireland, the United States, and Australia during the 1860s and 1870s, the series will follow the real-life plan members of the Irish Republican Brotherhood, a 19th-century group made to free six political prisoners from a British penal colony in Western Australia while aboard the whaleship, The Catalpa. The writer, poet, and journalist John Boyle O’Reilly was among the political prisoners sent to a British penal colony in Australia.
1618 MOVIE TRAILER
FOR NEW 17TH CENTURY DRAMA
Your trailer for today comes all the way from Brazil for their historical movie drama 1618 which will stream on Apple TV in USA from April 7th! The visitation of the Inquisition to the city of Oporto, Portugal in 1618. At the time
the entire population was exhorted to denounce heresies under pain of excommunication. In a city where a large part of the population had Jewish ancestry, over one hundred New Christians, among others, were imprisoned, causing terror in the New Christian community, mass emigration and the near total destruction of the city’s economy. Friction between Porto’s judicial authorities, which had always been on good terms with the New Christians, and the inquisitorial visitation reached such a point that guards on horseback surrounded the ecclesiastical court, preventing the “heretics” in custody from being transported to Coimbra. The Visitor even travelled to Spain to give Philip II an account of the events transpired.
