A brand new mini-series from EWTN


This is an unofficial trailer that EWTN are allowing me to publish to coincide with interviews and requests for information on the project.

The series will be premiered by EWTN on 26th-29th October 2016, 8:30pm ET in the USA and 27/28 in the UK and Ireland at 9:30pm and is a four episode docudrama. It was filmed across Europe in 2015 and was completed in early 2016. It is perhaps our most ambitious yet, with live action drama sequences performed by professional and semi-professional actors and re-enactors. Special thanks to assistant director Tony Plumridge and costume designer Ellen Plumridge  at Triptych Productions, and production coordinator  David Benjamin at "Crusade" the re-enactment group for providing the live action sequences. This is a co-production between EWTN and Lux Communication.

Actors in trailer:
Robin Ingram - Cardinal and Grand Inquisitor; Tony Plumridge - Canon Lawyer; John Atterbury - Theologian
Lynn Robertson Hay - Falsely accused witch at the Tribunal; Jeff Baynham - Heretic, Cathar at the Tribunal; Andrew N. Hill - Galileo at the Tribunal; Richard Squires - Scribe and chaplain at the tribunal; Erik Jellyman - Papal Legate; Katherine Knight - Witch at cauldron; Sterling Archer - St James on horseback.

Like the Crusades it has a specially composed and recorded soundtrack by Chorus Salvatoris. The tracks in the trailer are the De Profundis and Domine ne in furore by Maria Jasurdova and The Black Legend by Moroslave Sibik. Sound mixing by Moroslave Sibik. Illustrations by Ursula Cavanagh.
