In some interesting news, it’s being reported that a TV series take on John Milton’s epic Paradise Lost poem is in development.

As per Screen Daily, Dancing Ledge Productions and Martin Freeman are the minds behind this planned drama series based around a legendary piece of work first published way, way back in 1667 which details the biblical tale of the Fall of Man.

At this stage, The Hobbit star Freeman and Dancing Ledge’s Laurence Bowen are speaking with writers and potential broadcasters both in the UK and the US. On whether Freeman may end up starring in the series is unknown at this point in time, but he’s definitely on board in an executive producer capacity.

On the project, Bowen enthused, “Paradise Lost is like a biblical Game of Thrones transporting the reader into an internecine world of political intrigue and incredible violence. At stake? The future of mankind. There’s never been a better time for big, original, bold drama series, and Martin and I both feel incredibly inspired by the material.”

From Freeman’s point, he simply added, “Paradise Lost is epic, exciting and surprisingly modern.”

Expect to hear more on all of this as we get it.
