“It’s the entire package that makes this perfect for event television programming. Kate Mosse’s book brings a worldwide awareness and built-in fan-base along with an amazing concept. Adrian Hodges is a hugely accomplished screenwriter, who understands how to pull an audience in from the first scene and we’re thrilled to be working with the head of Scott Free’s UK theatrical and television company, Liza Marshall.”
“It’s a real privilege to be bringing Kate Mosse’s wonderful novel to the screen. From the moment I finished the book, I knew it would make a thrilling and emotional television epic. We have such fantastic elements; Adrian Hodges’ brilliant adaptation, an exceptional cast, and the uniquely talented Chris Smith at the helm. I am confident we are going to make something very special that will appeal to audiences around the world.”
“LABYRINTH’s story affords us the opportunity to create exciting drama that will thrill and delight the book’s readers worldwide and the viewers, who’ll be discovering it for the first time. We look forward to this new chapter in the long-standing relationship between Tandem and Scott Free, and also to bringing the quality that has become the hallmark of our joint efforts with Tandem to yet another piece of event television.”
"I just love the material. Two women, separated by 800 years, protecting the Holy Grail. On the one hand an epic medieval drama, on the other a supernatural thriller. I'm a massive fan of medieval films. It's such an exciting period of history, and the chance to approach it once again, on an even bigger scale is something that really excites me. It's also an enormous privilege to be working with Ridley Scott."
“A new chapter of LABYRINTH is about to begin. The characters I first dreamed about twenty-one years ago, are now setting out on a new journey. After eight hundred years of history and five hundred pages of fiction, I am delighted that Scott Free and Tandem Communications are taking LABYRINTH from the page to the screen.”
“I'm delighted to be adapting Kate Mosse's terrific novel for the screen, it has a scale, ambition and scope that's very rare, as millions of readers already know. The combination of brilliantly researched history with a thrilling modern story is exciting and original, and my ambition is to do it full justice for the screen in a way that will satisfy both existing fans of the novel and worldwide television audiences. It's also a pleasure to be working with Scott Free and Tandem, who have already proved they can deliver fantastic television drama with last year's international hit The Pillars Of The Earth.”
