December 5, 2014 | ‘The Dovekeepers’ Official Release Dates & Times
(0)   |   Published by Crystal   |       Cote News , Gallery Update , The Dovekeepers

Though we had a good idea of when the mini-series was starting thanks to a Facebook post from Alice Hoffman, the author of the book the television show is based upon, we now have official confirmation from CBS as to which dates and times it will be on CBS!

 

From CBS’ press release:

Cote de Pablo, Rachel Brosnahan, Kathryn Prescott, Diego Boneta and Sam Neill Star

 

Based on Alice Hoffman’s Bestselling Historical Novel About a Group of Extraordinary Women Whose Lives Intersect In a Fight for Survival at the Siege of Masada in 70 C.E.

 

CBS today announced THE DOVEKEEPERS, a four-hour limited event series from executive producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, will be broadcast Tuesday, March 31 and Wednesday, April 1, 2015 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT).

 

The project stars Cote de Pablo, Rachel Brosnahan and Kathryn Prescott in the title dovekeeper roles, Sam Neill as first-century Jewish scholar and historian Josephus, and Diego Boneta as a star warrior of the Jewish army at Masada. The series is based on Alice Hoffman’s bestselling, critically acclaimed historical novel about a group of extraordinary women whose lives intersect in a fight for survival at the siege of Masada.

 

Set in ancient Israel, THE DOVEKEEPERS is based on the true events at Masada in 70 C.E. After being forced out of their home in Jerusalem by the Romans, 900 Jews were ensconced in a fortress at Masada, a mountain in the Judean desert. Besieged at Masada, the Jews held out for months against the vast Roman armies. The project will recount the events from the perspective of a few extraordinary women who arrive at Masada with unique backstories, but a common bond for survival. Additionally, these women, who work together daily as dovekeepers, are all concealing substantial secrets.

 

Hoffman’s novel was published in 2011 by Scribner, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, earning the New York Times’ bestseller status and widespread critical acclaim, including being hailed by Nobel laureate Toni Morrison as “a major contribution to 21st century literature.”

 

THE DOVEKEEPERS will be brought to television from executive producers Roma Downey and multiple Emmy Award winner Mark Burnett (SURVIVOR, “The Voice”), the production team behind the Emmy-nominated 10-hour miniseries “The Bible,” which scored big ratings for the History Channel in March 2013, and the feature “Son of God.”

 

Frank Siracusa, John Weber and Yves Simoneau also serve as executive producers, with Simoneau directing. Ann Peacock adapted the novel for the screen.

 

THE DOVEKEEPERS is the first project from CBS Entertainment and CBS Television Studios’ Limited Series and Event Programming unit. It is a co-production between CBS Television Studios and LightWorkers Media, a division of United Artists Media Group.

December 3, 2014 | ‘The 33′ Chilean Release Date Announced
(0)   |   Published by Crystal   |       Cote News , The 33

A release date for The 33 has been announced by 20th Century Fox Chile. As of right now it seems that this date does not apply to any other countries but for Chile, but for right now the first release date will be August 6th, 2015. This date is five years and one day after the Copiapó mining accident, which the film is based upon.

 

According to an article from Latercera.com (original link in Spanish), Mario Sepúlveda and Samuel Avalos, two of the Chilean miners, visited Los Angeles in November to view a cut of the film at the TCL Chinese Theater. It also states that it is about two hours in length and is currently being shopped to US distributors. The film will be in English, and subtitled and dubbed in Spanish with several of the actors doing their own Spanish dubbing.

 

Hopefully a US distributor will pick it up soon and we will get more release dates!

 

(If any of my interpretation or translation of the information from Latercera is wrong, please let me know!)
