Das Boot Helmer Tackles Alex Rider Series

Andreas Prochaska, who helmed the recent “Das Boot” mini-series kicking off on Hulu this month, has signed on to direct and executive produce the upcoming TV series adaptation of Anthony Horowitz’s young adult novel series “Alex Rider”.

Sony Pictures Television and Eleventh Hour Films are funding the show which chronicles the rise of a young, reluctant teenage spy.

Prochaska will direct the first four episodes which will be based on “Point Blanc,” the second novel in the long-running series. Guy Burt (“Harriet’s Army”) will write the script.
