Carnival Films Plans Churchill Biopic

Carnival Films has optioned Michael Shelden’s non-fiction novel “Young Titan” to develop into a British TV series.

Published earlier this year, the story follows the colorful early career of Winston Churchill from 1901 to 1915 – at the height of England’s imperial glory.

Carnival Films are producers on ITV’s global hit “Downton Abbey”. They plan to first develop ‘Titan’ in the UK, then shop it around to the U.S. and other global markets.
