Wolf Hall to be made into mini series by the BBC and HBO.

The BBC and HBO are developing a TV drama mini-series adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s Man Booker prize-winning historical novel Wolf Hall to be broadcast on BBC2.

Wolf Hall charts the rise to power of Thomas Cromwell in the court of Henry VIII.

Mantel revealed earlier this week that she is planning a Tudor trilogy, with a second novel, Bring Up the Bodies, to be published next year focusing on Anne Boleyn. The third book, The Mirror & the Light, will see Cromwell’s story through until his execution in 1540.

The TV adaptation is being developed by Company Pictures, the UK independent producer behind Shameless, Skins and The Shadow Line, and Playground Entertainment, the US company set up by former HBO Films president Colin Callender.
