Louise Penny’s Still Life – Update on the CBC Movie Adaptation

In August I posted about an interview with author Louise Penny that I heard on the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) about her latest Chief Inspector Gamache novel, The Beautiful Mystery.  I mentioned that the CBC was adapting the first novel of the series, Still Life, into a tv movie.

Now, Ms. Penny reports on her blog that filming has already started in the Eastern Townships of Québec.  Also (very exciting) is the news that Nathaniel Parker of Inspector Lynley fame has been cast in the role of Gamache.  I take it as a hopeful sign about the quality of the production that such a well-known and accomplished actor is playing the lead.

In the coming weeks I’ll let you know about some brand new ITV and BBC commissions that we can look forward to, and I’ll also pass along the premiere dates for drama and crime shows debuting early in the new year.

In fact, now that I think of it, here are three that you won’t want to miss:

Ripper Street – January 19 and Spies of Warsaw – February 6 — both on BBC America.  Also, Justified – January 8 on FX.
