ITV Studios will produce a major television miniseries, Titanic, set to air in the UK, USA and several territories, and in Australia via Seven next year.
The event is scheduled to coincide with the centenary of its tragedy, which takes place on 14th April 1912.
Written by Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey, Gosford Park), it will air as a 2 x 90 minute and 4 x 1 hour mini series. Produced by Nigel Stafford-Clark (Bleak House, Warriors, The Way We Live Now) and Chris Thompson (Love Actually, No 1 Ladies Detective Agency), it will film in Hungary.
According to its Press Release, the miniseries will focus on different characters “ranging from steerage passengers to upper class guests. Each point of view will culminate in a cliff hanger as the ship begins to founder, building to an explosive conclusion which draws together each of the stories.”
Maria Kyriacou, Managing Director at ITV Studios said, “Providing a vividly different experience of the ship’s last hours alongside a definitive snapshot of what was a unique and uncertain moment in history – Titanic promises to be the must-see original drama for this landmark centenary anniversary and gripping primetime content for audiences around the world.”
