'The Pillars of the Earth' (2010)

Novelist Ken Follett's immense 1989 novel about the construction of a cathedral in 12th century England became the basis for Tony and Ridley Scott's eight-part TV miniseries in 2010. The miniseries starring Ian McShane was nominated for seven Emmy awards and won one. The Scotts set about adapting Follett's follow-up novel, "World Without End," which is due to debut on the Reelz Channel later in 2012.
