More About Terry Pratchett’s Discworld TV Show, The Watch

Continuing on from yesterday’s info dump about the upcoming TV adaptations of Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens and The Watch, we’ve just been informed by Narrativia that some of the details circulating for the latter show are inaccurate, and the truth just got very interesting.

First of all, the budget for The Watch will be double of what has previously been reported. With thirteen sixty-minute episodes in the fantasy police procedural series and an overall budget of around £26 million (as opposed to the £13-15 million previously reported), the actual budget will be around £2 million ($3.3 million) per episode. Think of all the sausages inna bun they can buy with that.

Secondly, whilst the four-part miniseries of Good Omens will be penned by Terry Jones and Gavin Scott, the writer for The Watch is Guy Burt, who has previously written for the brilliantly tense crime series Wire in the Blood, historical drama The Borgias, and Stephen Fry comedy series Kingdom. A nice recipe of relevant experience in there to help bring Sam Vimes and the Ankh-Morpork City Watch to life.
