Sundance Getting in on the Hot New Trend of Mini-Series Adaptations for Novels That Didn't Work as Movies
This is Farah Fawcett on ABC at 8:00pm ET.
iZombie on The CW at 8:00pm ET.
Red Nose Day on NBC at 8:00pm ET. I still don’t feel like this is catching on in America the way NBC would like, but I could be wrong!
RuPaul’s Drag Race on VH1 at 9:00pm ET.
The Name of the Rose on Sundance at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. I thought the name of the rose was just “rose” but what do I know. This adaptation of Umberto Eco’s novel stars John Turturro who also helped write for the miniseries. The was previously a movie made of this novel but since it’s been over 32 years I guess we can’t really accuse anyone of readapting it too quickly. Definitely not in a summer that will also see a mini-series adaptation of Watchmen and The Golden Compass which came out far more recently.
