Kate Mosse’s LABYRINTH Being Adapted into Miniseries


Kate Mosse’s best-selling grail quest novel LABYRINTH is coming to television. Variety reports that Ridley and Tony Scott’s Scott Free production company is teaming with Tandem Communications to create a four-hour miniseries adaptation of the 2005 book.

Labyrinth focuses on two parallel stories occurring 800 years apart. In the present, an archaeological volunteer discovers a cave with two skeletons and a labyrinth on both the wall and a ring. In 1209 a young woman and her father must protect three sacred books that contain the secret of the Holy Grail.

Adrian Hodges (Primeval) is writing the script and shooting is expected to begin this fall, though no cast has been announced.

Ridley Scott said, “[This] story affords us the opportunity to create exciting drama that will thrill and delight the book’s readers worldwide and the viewers who’ll be discovering it for the first time.”

Scott Free and Tandem have previously collaborated on the television adaptation of Ken Follett’s ‘The Pillars of the Earth.’
