'The Pillars of the Earth': Laying the foundation

How do you adapt 1,000 pages of plot? Honestly, a mini-series is really pretty much the only format that makes any sense for books that are bigger than a breadbox. Just take a look at Shogun, or the Stephen King double bill of It and The Stand, or even the upcoming HBO series based on George R.R. Martin’s epically lengthy fantasy novels, in which each season will essentially be a mini-series adaptation of a single one of the books. So it makes total sense that Ken Follett’s massive cube of a historical novel The Pillars of the Earth would end up as an “8-hour mini-series event.” To Read More Click Here .

Pillars of the Earth: A Towering Achievement

It wasn't the swords. It wasn't the sandals. For Rufus Sewell, the tough part was all the stinkin' mud. Playing a 12th-century stonemason in mega miniseries The Pillars of the Earth, premiering tonight on Starz at 10/9c, meant maintaining "a level of grime on my neck consistent with that of your typical farm animal," he says. A small price, indeed, for what's shaping up to be the armor-clanking, leech-sucking, monks-a-poppin' drama of the summer. Pillars, based on Ken Follett's doorstop of a best-seller (all 973 pages of it), about the quest to build a Gothic cathedral in a fictional England of yore, runs eight hours over six Friday nights, which more or less qualifies it as a TV "event," though that's established the second Donald Sutherland saunters in, wearing a camel-colored cloak and a beard worthy of its own Emmy. It helps, too, that the producers are Ridley and Tony Scott, who normally limit their medieval screw-turning and bodice-ripping to the megaplex screen. "I'm a history supporter, and television was really the only way to present a historical tale this vast," says Ridley (Robin Hood). "With so many individual characters and so much time and ground to cover, two hours simply wasn't enough." To Read More Click Here .
