The epic mini-series World Without End will make its U.S. premiere on Wednesday, October 17, 2012 at 9p ET and at 9p PT in a two-hour television event featuring the first two parts. World Without End, starring Cynthia Nixon (Sex and the City, The Big C) and Miranda Richardson (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, The Young Victoria) is an adaptation of Ken Follett's international best-selling novel set amidst natural disaster, plague, and war in 14th century England two hundred years after the construction of the great cathedral in The Pillars of the Earth.
World Without End picks up with a new cast of characters, including Caris, a feisty young woman played by Charlotte Riley (The Duchess, Wuthering Heights), who inspires her medieval town of Kingsbridge to confront the most powerful forces of her time, namely the Church and the Crown, as they fight to save their town from ruin and, ultimately, usher in a new era of freedom, innovation, and enlightenment.
“It’s going to be an epic October on REELZ and World Without End is the epicenter,” said Stan E. Hubbard, CEO of REELZCHANNEL. “World Without End is a spectacular production with enveloping stories and a stellar cast of characters—all of which will encompass our entire network and we’re excited to take our viewers on the journey through Ken Follett’s brilliant world using our unique TV About Movies approach.” details about World Without End Posted 08.15.12 by reelz
