Werner Herzog To Direct “Fordlandia” TV Series

Oscar-winning filmmaker Werner Herzog (“Rescue Dawn,” “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans”) is set to direct every episode of the event series “Fordlandia,” a TV adaptation of Greg Grandin’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel set up at Hyde Park Entertainment.

Christopher Wilkinson (“Miles Ahead”) will adapt the true story tale of the richest man in the world in the 1920s, Henry Ford, and his attempt to recreate small-town America deep in the heart of the Amazon.

Ashok Amritraj and Herzog are serving as executive producers, while Addison Mehr and Priya Amritraj are co-producing the project.
