Ken Follett’s Pillars Of The Earth Now A TV Show

So one of my all time favorite books, Ken Follett’s Pillars of the Earth, has been made into a television show. For those of you not familiar with the book, I strongly encourage you to check it out. It takes place in 12th century England in a small town that has decided to build a cathedral. However, the book is mostly about the lives of those in the town as they deal with love, poverty, deception, greed, and family.

My guess is, though, that you have heard of this book. Although it was written in 1989, it continues to sell about 100,000 copies a year in the US alone. So, it seems about freaking time that somebody has adapted the book for television. That being said, I have to admit that I am cautiously excited about the show. I’m hoping they stick very closely to the book, which I know rarely happens in Hollywood. So, what do you think about the idea of a Pillars of the Earth TV series? Are you going to check it out?

Our friends over at Daemons TV have been all over the TV show and I highly encourage fans of the book to check out some of the early pictures from the show (click here to check them out).

Pillars of the Earth premieres next Friday July 23rd on Starz.
