CW has picked up the Labyrinth mini series. Labyrinth stars John Hurt (Ollivander), as well as Tom Felton. The mini series is based off of Kate Mosse’s New York Times best selling novel, and will consist of only four hours of footage. Labyrinth has aired in Europe and Canada, and this will mark its US premiere. However there is no due date set. According to Cinemablend, a description of the Labryrinth shed further light on the mini series:

In Carcassonne, France, in the year 1209, 17-year-old Alaïs (Jessica Brown-Findlay, “Downton Abbey’ “Misfits”), is given a mysterious book by her father; a book which he claims contains the secret of the true Grail. Although Alaïs cannot understand the book’s strange words and labyrinth symbols, her father instructs her to protect the book no matter what happens to him. Alaïs realizes that her destiny lies in keeping the secret of the labyrinth safe. Eight centuries later, at an archeological dig in the French Pyrenees, a young volunteer named Alice Tanner (Vanessa Kirby, “The Hour’ “Great Expectations”) discovers two skeletons in a forgotten cave. Puzzled by the labyrinth symbol carved into the rock, she realizes she’s disturbed something that was meant to remain hidden. Somehow, a link to a horrific past ’ Alice’s own past ’ has been revealed. “

Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: Sounds very interesting. Glad it finally got picked up for us in the US.Avatar Imagemoglet says: For fans of Downton Abbey, Alais is played by Jessica Brown Findlay (Lady Sibyl) and for fans of Merlin, Alais sister Oriane is played by Katie McGrath (Morgana). I enjoyed watching Labyrinth although the acting was a bit patchy in places.
