Primeval co-creator Adrian Hodges is to adapt Giles Milton's book White Gold for Channel 4. Hodges is writing a two-hour pilot script and series bible for a proposed 12-part series based on Milton's non-fiction work, which investigates the slave trade in North Africa. White Gold is being developed by Red Arrow Entertainment and 4Rights, with Red Arrow's Simon Maxwell serving as executive producer and Sophie Gardiner leading development for Channel 4. "White Gold blows the lid off a forgotten yet revelatory chapter from our past and, given the sheer scale and ambition of the project, we're delighted to have Adrian Hodges at the helm to bring this story to life," said Maxwell. "It's a story as thought-provoking as it is gripping and its perfect home is Channel 4." > Youngers: New teen comedy (more) »
