ProSieben, Sogecable take ‘Pillars’

Series co-produced by Tandem, Scott Free

BERLIN — Tandem Communications has inked deals with German broadcaster ProSieben and Sogecable in Spain for its miniseries adaptation of Ken Follett’s “Pillars of the Earth.”

Co-produced by Scott Free, the eight-hour mini chronicles the construction of a cathedral in 12th century England amidst romance and political turmoil.

For Sogecable, which is acquiring the series for its pay TV channel Canal Plus and free TV outlet Cuatro, “Pillars of the Earth” marks the latest in a string of acquisitions from Tandem, including its upcoming sci-fi disaster titles “Impact” and “Lost City Raiders,” as well as “The Company,” TNT’s hit CIA miniseries, which Scott Free also co-produced with Tandem.

In Germany, ProSieben will air “Lost City Raiders,” which Sci Fi Channel picked up for the U.S.
