Canal Plus joins C4’s Homeland

Posted by Anna with 1 Comment

French pay broadcaster Canal Plus is to team with British broadcaster Channel 4 on Peter Kosminsky’s event mini-series Homeland.

The series will be produced by UK indie Daybreak Pictures (The Trial of Tony Blair) and French producer Breakout Films (Resolution 819) and will be directed by Kosminsky, who has worked on Wuthering Heights and race drama Britz.

The 4x1hour mini-series is part of Channel 4’s £20 million push to expand its drama output following this year’s end of reality series Big Brother and the network will air it in 2011, followed by a broadcast on Canal Plus as well as cultural channel Arte.

Homeland follows Little Dorrit‘s Claire Foy as a young girl who travels to Israel after uncovering her grandfather’s journal documenting his experience in the British army around the time of the British mandate of Palestine.

    Sounds like Claire’s career has taken off in the UK. We are still watching Little Dorritt, not that there’s anything wrong with that, and still waiting for the Nicolas Cage film.
