The wise financialites behind TVs “Downton Abbey” seemingly plan on capturing the ’20s on film (though, is it even film anymore? Aren’t most of these shows shot on Red now? A question for a recently retrenched Kodak executive I guess!) a little longer. London’s Carnival Films, the shingle behind the popular British drama, are putting together a series based on 20th Century politico Winston Churchill, according to Deadline.
Source of the series’ storylines will be Michael Shelden’s true-life Edwardian saga, ”Young Titan”, which was published in March.
The book fixes largely on Churchill’s early years (1901-1915) – before he made the top-hat, cigar and droopy sad-face combo so chic.
The idea is to launch the series in the UK, before finding a US home for it.
