Neve Campbell in Talks to Join Titanic: Blood And Steel Miniseries

31 August 2011 9:43 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With series like Boardwalk Empire and Mad Men finding plenty of success and praise, period dramas seem to be all the rage on TV right now (especially with Pan-Am and The Playboy Club on the way this fall). Now another period drama is ready to set sail as Variety reports a new miniseries called Titanic: Blood and Steel is set to begin production in Serbia this week. The series, said to be a cross between Downtown Abbey and Boardwalk Empire, focuses on on designing and building the ship against the class-bound backdrop of Edwardian Belfast, Northern Ireland, where financial pressures led to fatal compromises. The series will be directed by Ciaran Donnelly (The Tudors) and is in the midst of snagging Neve Campbell to play a reporter covering the liner's first voyage who may have deeper reasons for being on board while Chris Noth is in talks to play financier J.P. Morgan. »
