Coming in April 2012 is the new four-part mini-series based on the sinking of the Titanic. Created by BAFTA award-winning Nigel Stafford-Clark (Bleak House, The Passion) and written by Oscar award-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey, Gosford Park), Titanic will feature a whopping 89 main characters by following four separate, yet intertwined, narratives building to a dramatic climax. Dubbed as the 'television event of 2012', Titanic has already been sold to 57 international countries and is set to broadcast around the world at the same time to coincide with the 100th Anniversary, the centenary of the disaster.
Titanic is a four-part television drama created by producer Nigel Stafford-Clark and written by Julian Fellowes to mark the one hundredth anniversary of the world's most famous maritime disaster in April 1912. This multi-million dollar television event will be an extraordinary re-telling of that doomed voyage, cleverly weaving action, mystery and romantic plots before coming together in an explosive and unforgettable finale. As the story unfolds over each episode, it will set out to paint a portrait of a whole society, telling the stories of a wide range of characters, both historical and fictional, from every social level. Their narratives are developed and gradually interwoven over the first three episodes, each of which ends in a cliff-hanger as the ship begins to founder. The fourth and final episode will draw all of the different stories together and reveal to the audience who survives.
