TORONTO — Alliance Atlantis has sold its four-hour miniseries “Life With Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows,” to Britain’s Channel 4.
C4 earlier bought AAC’s “Nuremberg” miniseries, starring Alec Baldwin, Brian Cox and Jill Hennessy.
“We buy very few miniseries,” said June Dromgoole, C4’s controller of program acquisition. “But I felt that the quality of these shows was such that their natural home was C4.”
Project’s produced by AAC with IN-motion of Germany in association with Storyline Entertainment. Mini, which stars Judy Davis, Victor Garber, Hugh Laurie and Tammy Blanchard, is based on the memoir “Me & My Shadows” by Garland’s daughter Lorna Luft. Its premiere on ABC in February garnered 20.3 million viewers.
