In late 2011, Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall was picked up by HBO in conjunction with BBC for a four-part tv miniseries. The book, told from the viewpoint of Thomas Cromwell, traces the rise and subsequent fall (in the sequel, Bring Up the Bodies) of Anne Boleyn during 16th century England. Having read the book, I’m interested to see how HBO and BBC will bring the story to tv audiences. I’m also excited to see the Tudor England costumes designed for the series, as HBO and BBC surely have the budget to do this well. I’ll keep an eye out for any other news regarding the tv series and you can read a bit more about it here and here.
