I don’t know how you are feeling by this time of the year but we’re beat! 2010 was a busy year, filled with successful new launches like Sherlock, Luther, and Life, but we certainly felt like we were all working twice as hard just to stay in place. As it quiets down I thought I’d take a look at the slate we’ve put together next year and share just a few of the things we’re looking forward to sharing with you in the upcoming year:
(1) Human Planet. For the first time our Natural History Unit has turned its world class cameramen and story tellers on the most successful animal on the planet—Humans. What I’ve seen so far looks great!
(2) More Sherlock! ‘Nuff said.
(3) Hamlet at Elsinore. This much requested version stars Christopher Plummer in the title role. Sir Michael Caine mentioned at a recent screening we attended that this was the best Hamlet he ever saw (he was also in it) and he wished it would come to DVD. Your wish, Sir Michael, is our command. There is also a new Macbeth starring Patrick Stewart, which is airing now in the UK.
I don’t want to spoil all our surprises—we’ll have over a 100 new titles next year—but since we’re taking the next week off, we wanted to give you this exciting dose of DVD news to start off what we hope will be a great New Year!
