Dancing Ledge & Martin Freeman to Adapt Paradise Lost


Dancing Ledge Productions is developing an adaptation of Paradise Lost with Martin Freeman on board as an executive producer.

Freeman has a development deal with the FremantleMedia-backed producer. Dancing Ledge CEO Laurence Bowen and Freeman are currently discussing the project with writers and broadcasters in the U.K. and U.S.

The company has also recently partnered with Framestore to produce the VFX for the project.

Bowen commented, “Paradise Lost is like a biblical Games of Thrones, transporting the reader into an internecine world of political intrigue and incredible violence. At stake? The future of mankind. There’s never been a better time for big, original, bold drama series and Martin and I both feel incredibly inspired by the material.”

Freeman added, “Paradise Lost is epic, exciting and surprisingly modern. And maybe the first time the devil gets all the best tunes!”
