Lawrence of Arabia (mini-series)


Distinguished Member
Roland Emmerich (White House Down) will produce a six-hour event mini-series based on the legendary story of Lawrence of Arabia for FremantleMedia International, who are developing.

The production will center on the heroic journey of British Army officer T.E. Lawrence, who became famous as “Lawrence of Arabia” due to his unique role and relationship with Arab leaders during World War I.

Written by award-winning screenwriter Clive Bradley (City of Vice, Waking the Dead).

FremantleMedia CEO David Ellender;
”T.E. Lawrence was undoubtedly one of the greatest military and political strategists of our time and a stunningly intrepid Englishman who tried to unite the Arab world. The heritage of this story is fascinating – beyond the historical element, it’s a personal tale of emotional turmoil, identity crisis, conflicting loyalties and individual brilliance. The Middle East and Arab Spring as we know them today are linked to Lawrence’s actions, which make this epic incredibly topical. I am delighted that we are working with partners of such high-caliber to bring this project to the screen.”
