Terry Pratchett’s “Hogfather” Makes Its U.S. Television Debut
New RHI Entertainment Production to Premiere on ION Television November 25

NEW YORK -- Enter into the world of fantasy and imagination with Hogfather, a humorous and satirical miniseries based on the best-selling novel by Terry Pratchett. RHI Entertainment, a leading television production and distribution entity, announced today that Hogfather will make its U.S. television debut during the RHI Movie Weekend on ION Television, Sunday, November 25 (7/6c).

Terry Pratchett’s Hogfather is part of the best-selling fantasy book series that has sold over 41 million copies worldwide. The series takes place in Discworld, a flat world, perched on top of four elephants standing on the shell of a giant turtle that is drifting in space. Here, reality is stretched to its limit, but it’s still populated by humans, just like you and me…almost. Hogfather marks the first novel of the series to be adapted as a live action film.

It’s the night before Hogswatch (Christmas) in the parallel universe of Discworld. The Hogfather (Santa Claus) has gone missing in a plot by the evil Auditors to destroy human belief and make Discworld their own. With the Hogfather nowhere in sight, the character called Death takes his place to deliver presents to all the good girls and boys at the mid-winter festival. Will the presents be delivered? Will hope be restored so that the sun can rise tomorrow? Who will be able to save Discworld?

“Terry Pratchett is among the most prominent authors of our time,” said Robert Halmi, Jr., President and CEO of RHI Entertainment. “We are honored to work with him and are pleased to be the first to unveil Hogfather to a U.S. audience.”

The four-hour holiday miniseries event—which will air in its entirety on November 25, stars David Warner (Titanic), Marc Warren (Band of Brothers), Michelle Dockery (Fingersmith), Joss Ackland (K19 –The Widowmaker), and the voice of Ian Richardson (Bleak House). Hogfather was directed and screen-written by Vadim Jean, and produced by Rod Brown and Ian Sharples. Robert Halmi, Sr., Robert Halmi, Jr. and Elaine Pyke served as executive producers on the project.

“We are thrilled to continue fulfilling our brand promise to our audience with this latest quality original film for RHI Movie Weekend on ION Television,” said Brandon Burgess, CEO of ION Media Networks. “Through the addition of this kind of great content, ION Television can continue to accelerate its recent gains in viewership and attract a wide variety of consumers to our programming.”

RHI is currently filming Terry Pratchett’s, The Color of Magic, which follows the story of inept wizard Ricewind, and is slated to make its U.S. television debut in 2008. Pratchett’s Hogfather will also hit DVD shelves this winter at local Borders retailers.

That sucks that Perfect Strangers is gone. I would want Mama's Family to only be on once and Perfect Strangers on at 8 and 8:30pm. There schedule still says that its the Halloween episodes of Perfect Strangers on the 29th and 30th. When do they change their schedule?

I say recreate the old school ABC lineup by bringing back Growing Pains, and putting it on after Who's The Boss?

Perfect Strangers must have really been horrible for them, it was pulled faster than anything else that I can recall on there. Which is a shame, because it's a good show. I guess it just hasn't held up well.

Surprised Designing Women has lasted so. I'm also surprised Diagnosis Murder isn't back, I was thinking maybe they would have put it on at 7 and given DW the shaft.

I'm not sure. It might have been ratings obviously, but it could have been something else. I will find out.

It is a great show. It must have a lot of fans because the Seasons 1 and 2 DVD which is not coming until Feb. 5, is like in top 50 on Amazon right now. It is selling like hotcakes!

Yeah, every show before was at least given two months. This is unfair to the show and the fans. They gave us what we wanted, then yanked it off. Strange how the ratings were bad, the show is already popular on dvd. I'll be sure to get that when it's released. And the show lasted at least a year every other time it was in syndication. I can't believe Doc and Sue Thomas do better in the ratings. I got every episode on tape that they showed though, as well as some from before and the dvd episode, so I'll be sure to watch those and the online episodes until the dvd's released.

How can they judge PS's performance based on the first few seasons? I heard the Chronicle days were better anyway. I wanted to see Harriette from Family Matters. Ugh.

I LOVE Mama's Family, but isn't it about time it gives up the 8PM slot. ION should move it to 7PM.

7:30PM Designing Women
8:00PM Mama's Family
8:30PM Mama's Family

Default Perfect Strangers

OMG, I cannot believe that the show has been pulled already, after only 4 weeks! They didn't even give it a chance to earn any ratings. Now they're going back to have two EXTREMELY unfunny episodes of Designing Women. PLEASE!!!! I can only hope that the people at ION read these blogs and give it another shot. Maybe change the time slot or something. Now I guess I'll have to get the DVD, though I didn't really plan on it because I thought I'd get to see them on ION. For a show that lasted over 7 seasons in its initial run, I would have assumed there would be huge interest in watching them again. Oh well.

That's a nice schedule pavan. Only exception is PS at 7pm, ad TWy at 6:30 would be better for me.

It's too bad PS didn't last too long. I was looking forward to the post-season 2 episodes, too. I really hope they bring it back soon. Now I'm sorry I didn't watch it when it was on.
