The Emmy–winning epic miniseries The Pillars of the Earth debuts on Reelz this Sunday, and we have a free app available that will enhance your viewing experience. Along with allowing you to delve deeper in the the story and 12th-century English history, the app helps you keep straight the large cast of characters in the sweeping historical saga based on Ken Follett's best-selling novel.
The app features Follett's personal notes about the adaptation, including his comments about the key characters, crucial scenes, and even his own cameo. It also offers a Timeline of Events, giving historical context to the depicted events, and is loaded with tidbits about how actors prepared for their roles and what changed from the book to the miniseries. There is also an opportunity for fans to join the conversation through Facebook Connect and Twitter.
