Allan Quatermain Series is Coming to Television


Sonar Entertainment and Ecosse Films have teamed up for a $30 million, 10-part action-adventure series based on H. Rider Haggard’s Allan Quatermain books, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The project is a joint venture between Sonar Entertainment and Ecosse Films (“Camelot,” “Monarch of the Glen”). Writers Richard Kurti and Bez Doyle (“Going Postal”) are on board to pen the script.

“ItÂ’s an incredible character from a range of best selling books,” Stewart Till, CEO of Sonar Entertainment said. “I read all the books as a child and it is something that many Brits have grown up with. It’s also the kind of high-concept adventure that broadcasters are looking for.”

The show is expected to shoot in Africa.
