In a new bold and ambitious project, it is being reported that Ridley Scott and Steven Knight are joining forces to create a brand new WWII television series.
The new show, given the working title of Roads to Freedom, will be made up of ten episodes and based on the books of Sir Antony Beevor.
According to Deadline, the new show will “portray the brutal realities from multiple viewpoints, with characters not only from the U.S. and UK but also from Russia, Germany, France and other countries across the globe” and will be told from a number of different international perspectives.
“Some of the story lines will be discomforting, but heroic, and the race between East and West to capture Berlin will shed light on what became the foundations of the Cold War,” the show description adds, before explaining that Roads to Freedom will tackle themes of “humanity, the characters bound together by one dramatic story.”
It is not yet known when production will begin on the new project.
