telefilm/mini-series in the can
(from ABC's press release, February 2012) From the creative minds of Julian Fellowes, Academy Award ("Gosford Park"), Emmy and Golden Globe winner ("Downton Abbey"), and BAFTA-winning producer Nigel Stafford Clark ("Bleak House") comes the highly anticipated ABC Premiere Event, "Titanic," a four-part miniseries that will premiere SATURDAY, APRIL 14 (8:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. Parts One-Three will air on April 14, and the miniseries will conclude with Part Four on SUNDAY, APRIL 15 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), which will actually mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic on April 15, 1912. "Titanic" is an extraordinary re-telling of the doomed voyage that cleverly weaves action, mystery and romance over four hours and two nights of programming. Shot in Budapest, Hungary, it features both fictional and historical characters, ranging from steerage passengers and crew to upper class guests and staff, who all come together in an explosive and unforgettable finale. Each hour follows similar events from different points of view, culminating in a cliff-hanger, as the ship begins to founder, and building to an explosive conclusion in the final hour that draws together all the stories. Viewers will be taken on a heart-wrenching journey through Titanic's last moments, as it's revealed who among the characters they've come to know so well will survive, and who will not.
