|His Dark Materials, the BBC series|
Founded by former BBC producers Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner (Doctor Who), Bad Wolf teams for this project with Scholastic (Deborah Forte) and New Line Cinema (Toby Emmerich & Carolyn Blackwood), both involved in Chris Weitz's The Golden Compass en 2007, already based on the first book in Philip Pullman's trilogy. The author will also act as executive producer of the show.
Jack Thorne, co-writer of the stageplay Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, was named in 2016 as scriptwriter. In early 2017, as Bad Wolf uploaded on its Twitter account two pics of his script for the series' first episode, the title was clearly visible: "Roger".
The shooting of series one just started at Wolf Studios, Cardiff, Wales while additional scenes were filmed in Oxford, in the first day of July 2018.
The series is expected to be a five-series show of 8 episodes each. Each episode will be 1-hour long.
Dafne Keen (Lyra), Lin-Manuel Miranda (Lee), James McAvoy (Asriel) and Ruth Wilson (Mrs. Coulter) will play in the series.
Tom Hooper (A King's Speech) will direct the first two episodes, followed by Dawn Shadforth and Otto Bathurst for the next three.
