MEDIA ALERT from Fanscape and ION:
UK Film Sensation Makes Its Way To The States
Hogfather Will Air On ION Television November 25th


RHI entertainment presents a 4-hour miniseries event perfect for the holiday season. Hogfather, from the imagination of best-selling novelist Terry Pratchett, is a deliriously twisted take on the holidays.

Welcome to the Discworld, a parallel universe drifting through space perched on top of four elephants standing on the shell of a giant turtle. Here, reality is stretched to its limit, but it’s still populated by humans, just like you and me. Almost. It’s the night before Hogswatch, that special time when the Hogfather delivers presents to the kiddies at the mid-winter festival in the medieval melting pot of Ankh-Morpork. But when the Hogfather is kidnapped by a cadre of villains called the Auditors, the inspiring belief in Hogswatch could be lost forever. So could humanity, unless the Auditors’ evil plan is undone ASAP.

Hogfather will air on ION Television Sunday, November 25th at 7pm/6pm Central time.

  1. I’m a huge Pratchett fan, and love the animated versions of Soul Music and Wyrd Sisters. Thanks for pointing this out… I’ll have to see if I get this ION channel (I’ve never heard of it before)

  2. Heather – I haven’t read any!

    Dave – I had never heard of ION either. I just looked it up yesterday.. Low and behold, I have it! But most of the day was all paid-advertising. That’s why I’ve never paid attention to it!

  3. Someone here has not read Terry Pratchett? I am so freaking jealous. Because that initial OMG feeling is priceless. OMG at every opening sentence, which is always brilliant. Right there after Mark Twain on my all-time favorite list.

  4. Jean-Luc – Well, I’ll let you know if you missed anything after this weekend. lol

    Ciar – Well then! I guess I’m going to have to pick one up! Which of Pratchett’s is your favorite?

  5. Night Watch is my favorite Pratchett book, but there are better ones for first-time Discworlders. And of course, if you don’t want to bother with Discworld at all, there’s always “Good Omens” by Pratchett and Gaiman.

  6. Gosh. I can’t wait. I love love LOVE LOVE Terry Pratchett. I’ve been dying to see this one too. Thanks for the heads up! I’m so excited!!!!
