New GORMENGHAST TV series greenlit at Showtime

Showtime has given a series order to Gormenghast, a fresh TV adaptation of Mervyn Peake's influential fantasy series.

Mervyn Peake's trilogy, consisting of Titus Groan (1946), Gormenghast (1950) and Titus Alone (1959), is one of the most critically-acclaimed fantasy works of all time and considered to be one of the most important works of the fantastic ever published. The first two books were previously adapted as a television mini-series starring Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Christopher Lee and Stephen Fry in 2000.

Toby Whithouse (Being Human, Doctor Who) is showrunning the new project, with Neil Gaiman (Good Omens, American Gods) as an executive producer. Akiva Goldsman (Fringe, Star Trek: Discovery, Amazon's Dark Tower project) is also a producer and may write for the show.
