Greg Caggiano, my friend and colleague with whom I co-founded this blog in 2011, had a discussion with an unspecified member of the production team in regards to the future of the To Appomattox miniseries. Greg wrote some of the details of that discussion in the latest article for his blog From New York to San Francisco. The link to the article can be found below, but this is what was discussed in regards to the show’s future:
- The production team has officially severed ties with Sony Pictures Television. According to the article, Sony was being more of a hindrance than a help in getting this series made.
- The first episode of the eight-part miniseries is being re-worked as a 90-minute “backdoor pilot” for the series that will be filmed with the hope of generating interest in creating the full series.
- A Kickstarter Campaign is being created to help raise a portion of the budget for the filming of the show’s first episode.
As soon as further information can be obtained, it will be shared here. For further details, please read the article linked below.
