Given the freshness of the sales, the identity of the buying broadcaster partners remains to be revealed soon. The series, which steers a different narrative course, kicks off with two of the biggest audience lures of contemporary TV: Crime mystery and romantic melodrama.

Adventurer Anna Wetherall Hewson , who has sailed from Britain to New Zealand to begin a new life, stumbles drugged along a stormy coast in near pitch-black night, towards a cabin, as a man in shot and Anna then collapses. Cut to several months earlier and Anna, on the boat, meets Emery Staines Patel , a dapper, if poor, fortune seeker.

Variety talked to Eleanor Catton in the build-up to the U. The novel was admired for conveying a sensation of the joy of reading. My sense is that with the series you want to convey what for you and certainly for millions of people is the joy of watching series by combining two of the most gripping of series narratives: Romantic melodrama and a classic crime thriller.

Could you comment? Love stories and crime thrillers actually have a lot in common. They both promise a solution, a sense of a pattern finally coming together, which is a great comfort in our time of chaos and indifference. There is so much TV these days that is bleak as hell, which makes me cross because bleakness is so easy. Again, could you comment? Anna is deliberately occluded in the novel, for the reason that she is modeled on the astrological archetype of the Moon, which governs our hidden, interior, changeable selves.

I wanted to try and mimic the experience of planetary influence, so that the book would change its nature depending on whose point of view you favored. One key aspect of the novel noted by reviewers and readers is its artifice. Film captures a generally realistic image of the world. How far did you want to subject this to artifice? Structurally the novel was designed to be a kind of living horoscope. There are twelve characters representing signs of the zodiac, seven planetary characters, and a final earthly character whose death sets the story in motion; how these characters interact reflects the actual positions of the stars and planets over the goldfields at that time.

The challenge was to keep the spirit of the original while transforming the story for a new medium. One key moment in Ep. I think that Anna is attracted to Lydia, and this attraction makes her impulsive. The action shows the crucial difference between them as well: while Lydia loves to play Fate, Anna is content to surrender herself to it.

Why was that? The much bigger reason, though, is that the West Coast is not just rich in gold; it is also the source of pounamu, or greenstone, which is central to Maori life both as a treasure and as a tool. Pounamu plays such an important part in the story of The Luminaries that it would have been disrespectful to shoot the show offshore. Working Title is one of the bastions of European entertainment.

What did it bring to the table as a producer? The Luminaries spent a very long time in development- actually, it took me longer to adapt the book than to write it in the first place! It is an extraordinary company, and had already done so much to shape my cultural life before I even dreamed that we might one day work together.

The Luminaries

The twelve men inform Walter Moody about the events that have happened leading up to the current night. Crosbie Wells, a hermit of no ordinary notice, was found dead in his cabin, from an apparently peaceful death. Cowell Devlin found a letter which states that Emery Staines, a rich and well-liked man in Hokitika who has recently gone missing himself, was to pay 2, pounds to Anna Wetherell, a prostitute well known for frequenting the Chinatown areas of Hokitika, with Crosbie Wells presiding. The man who appears to be at the center of all these occurrences is named Francis Carver, a violent person who coincidentally captained the ship that Moody rode in to Hokitika.
