From the creative minds of Julian Fellowes, Academy Award (Gosford Park), Emmy and Golden Globe winner (“Downton Abbey”), and BAFTA-winning producer Nigel Stafford Clark (“Bleak House”) comes the highly anticipated ABC Premiere Event, “Titanic,” a four-part miniseries that will premiere Saturday, April 14 at 8:00 pm – 11 pm ET on the ABC Television Network. Parts One-Three will air on April 14, and the miniseries will conclude with Part Four on Sunday, April 15 at 9:00 pm ET to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic on April 15, 1912.
Ahead of any official announcement, we have learned that Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment plans to release Ghosts of the Abyss, the James Cameron documentary on the RMS Titanic, on Disney Blu-ray 3D on April 17, just a couple of days after the centennial marking of the ship’s fate.
Originally shot exclusively for IMAX 3D, the film has previously been released on DVD in 2D format, making this the first time the film will be available for 3D viewing in the home.
April 2012 marks the 100th Anniversary of the sinking of the HMS Titanic. To commemorate this significant centenary, BAFTA-winning producer Nigel Stafford Clark (“Bleak House,” “Warriors,” “The Way We Live Now”) has created “Titanic,” written by Julian Fellowes, Oscar winning screenwriter of the costume drama “Downton Abbey,” as well as “Gosford Park” and “The Young Victoria.” Jon Jones (“Going Postal,” “The Diary of Anne Frank,” “Northanger Abbey”) will direct. Nigel Stafford-Clark and Chris Thompson (“Love Actually,” “No 1 Ladies Detective Agency”) are producers. The miniseries is produced in association with ITV Studios and Shaw Media, who are partnered with Deep Indigo Productions and Lookout Point in the UK, Sienna Films Inc in Canada and Hungary-based Mid Atlantic Films to produce this UK-Hungary-Canada co-production.
