CMF Patron Philip Pullman brings ‘His Dark Materials’ to the small screen

“His Dark Materials is a stunning trilogy, and a drama event for young and old – a real family treat, that shows our commitment to original and ambitious storytelling.”
Polly Hill BBC Drama Commissioning Controller.

Jane Tranter – who will lead the project with fellow Bad Wolf founder and former ‘Doctor Who’ producer Julie Gardner – said bringing the trilogy to TV provided an opportunity to give it the treatment it deserved.

“There are some pieces of literature that are wonderfully suited to film. There are some pieces of literature which are better suited to television. To my mind what is great about these trilogy of novels is we can adapt them as Philip wrote them.”
