NBC Developing WWII Miniseries with BBC About Jews Who Fought Nazis in Britain (Exclusive)

29 September 2015 3:31 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC is developing a World War II miniseries, in collaboration with the BBC, Variety has learned exclusively.

Titled “The 43,” the six-part drama would chronicle the true story of a Jewish vigilante group who, between the years of 1946 and 1950, fought the rise of fascism that was emerging on the streets of Britain. Then, in 1950, having won the war against the British Nazis, the group disappeared, taking their story with them for nearly 70 years — until now.

Band of Brothers” writer/producer Erik Jendresen will pen the project, for which research was done by Daniel Sonabend and Luke Brandon Field.

Josh Sugarman, Will Gould, Brian O’Shea (“Drive,” “Rabbit Hole”) will serve as exec producers. The project hails from Sugarman’s Tenafly Film Co., Gould’s Tiger Aspect Drama and O’Shea’s The Exchange.

Since 1964 (yep) there have been Star Trek projects that simply didn't make it to the big or small screen. And before Star Trek's second (proper) coming in 1979's Star Trek: The Motion Picture, the franchise had more than its fair share of attempts to come to life, and then be reborn.

This lot in fact...

Star Trek – The (original) Original Series

Here's a thought – the original Star Trek series wasn't supposed to be the original Star Trek series.

The pilot that sold the show to NBC was in fact the second pilot, after the original, entitled The Cage, filmed at the end of 1964, was deemed too cerebral. That's on top of having other multiple issues that TV executives (and test audiences) of the time couldn't cope with – you know, like gender equality in the workplace. »
