Syfy Channel Developing New “Beowulf” TV Series

November 14, 2013

Syfy is developing a new drama series based on the classic Old English epic poem that further examines Beowulf’s rise to power and his feud with the monster Grendel.

The project is being written by Matt Greenberg (1408) who will executive produce with Brian Hamilton, Michael Checkik, Andrew Cosby, and Paulo de Oliveira.

Omni and Universal Cable Productions will also serve as co-distributors.

Beowulf is considered one of the most important works of Anglo-Saxon literature and was adapted into a film by Robert Zemeckis in 2007 that I personally enjoyed.
