The CW Acquires Event Series ‘Labyrinth’

Event series are so hot right now that even The CW is throwing their jaunty young person’s hat into the game.

The network announced they have acquired the four-part series Labyrinth starring John Hurt (Merlin), Sebastian Stan (Once Upon a Time), Jessica Brown-Findlay (Downton Abbey) and Tom Felton (The Harry Potter Series). Based on Kate Mosse’s best-selling novel of the same name, Labyrinth is set in 1209 Carcassonne, France, where 17-year-old Alaïs (Brown-Findlay)is given a book containing the secrets of the labyrinth by her father. Eight centuries later, at an archeological dig in the French Pyrenees, a volunteer named Alice Tanner (Vanessa Kirby) discovers two skeletons in a cave marked with the symbol of the labyrinth– which holds a link to Alice’s own past.

A premiere date for the event series will be announced at a later date. Are you going to watch Labyrinth?
