(Albuquerque, NM) Wednesday, August 15, 2012 - ReelzChannel - TV About Movies(R) today announced 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. World Without End was produced by Tandem Communications (The Pillars Of The Earth, The Company) and Take 5 Productions (The Tudors, The Borgias) in co-production with Galafilm, in association with Ridley Scott and Tony Scott's Scott Free Films (The Good Wife).

"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."

Filmed on location in Hungary, Austria and Slovakia with Howard Ellis' Mid Atlantic Films (The Pillars of the Earth), the eight-hour epic thriller is directed by Michael Caton-Jones (Rob Roy, This Boy's Life, Shooting Dogs - US title: Beyond the Gates). World Without End Executive Producers include Ridley Scott (Prometheus), Tony Scott (Unstoppable), Rola Bauer (The Pillars of the Earth), David W. Zucker (The Good Wife), Tim Halkin (Kate Mosse's Labyrinth), Jonas Bauer (The Lost Future), John Weber (The Borgias), with co-producer Arnie Gelbart (The Blue Butterfly).
