Emmerich Plans "Lawrence of Arabia" Mini

FremantleMedia International is developing a currently untitled six-hour miniseries based on the true story of T.E. Lawrence.

The story follows the journey of British Army officer Lawrence during World War I - an exceptional diplomat who was an invaluable resource for both Britain and the Arab insurgents he fought with in the war against the Ottoman Empire.

His life has been adapted to the screen before, most notably in David Lean’s classic 1962 "Lawrence of Arabia". Clive Bradley is penning the project, while Roland Emmerich and Marc Frydman will produce.
