TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A British production company is preparing to turn an Indiana State University professor's biography of Winston Churchill into a television series.
The Tribune-Star reports that "Downton Abbey" producer Carnival Films has bought the film rights to Michael Shelden's book exploring Churchill's early adult years.
Shelden's book is titled "Young Titan: The Making of Winston Churchill." It is his fifth biography and explores Churchill's life from around 1901 to 1915, when he was a globetrotting, romantic war hero-turned-liberal politician.
Shelden says he thought the book would play well on the big screen and went straight to Carnival Films with the idea.
His deal with Carnival includes an option for Shelden to serve as a production consultant.
