Titanic miniseries marks 100th anniversary of sinking


From a media release:

Shaw Media, along with ABC, ITV Studios and Lookout Point, unveils the epic mini-series Titanic on Global TV over four consecutive Wednesdays beginning March 21 at 10 PM. Created by BAFTA-winning producer Nigel Stafford-Clark (Warriors; The Way We Live Now; Bleak House) and written by Oscar® and Emmy® winner Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park; Downton Abbey), Titanic takes viewers on a heart wrenching journey through its last hours. Told through the perspective of characters ranging from steerage passengers to upper class guests, the story unravels under the shadow of the ship’s looming fate. Each episode culminates in a cliff-hanger as the ship falters, building to an explosive conclusion that draws each story together and reveals who survives…and who doesn’t.

Linus Roache (Law & Order, Batman Begins) and Geraldine Somerville (The Harry Potter films, Survivors) lead a talented cast that includes Canadians Noah Reid (Score: The Hockey Musical, Jane and the Dragon), Linda Kash (Cinderella Man, Best in Show) and David Eisner (Flashpoint).
