Looks like NBC is getting back into the mini-series business with a mammoth translation of three of Anne Rice's Mayfair witch books.


The network is looking to produce a 12 hour series from THE WITCHING HOUR, LASHER, and TALTOS, with an eye towards getting the mini-series on the air in 2003 or early 2004.


John Wilder, the scriptwriter for RETURN TO LONESOME DOVE, has been tapped for the considerable task of writing the script. In an interesting innovation over past mini-series, the network is kicking around the idea of airing it in twelve hour-long parts over twelve weeks, or three four hour, two night shots in the sweeps months (November, February, May) of the 2003-04 season.


We'll let you know more when it comes.
