TV: The Luminaries

BBC will adapt Eleanor Catton's Man Booker Prize-winning novel The Luminaries as a six-part drama series, which will also be written by the author. Filming of the hour-long episodes, produced by Working Title Television for BBC Two, begins in 2017 in New Zealand.

"Learning to write for television has been a bit like learning a new musical instrument: The melody is more or less the same, but absolutely everything else is different," Catton said. "I'm having enormous fun, learning every day, and just so excited to see the world of the novel created in the flesh."
