The Pillars of the Earth is an eight-part miniseries based on Ken Follett’s best-selling novel of the same name.

Emerging from the war-torn shadows of England’s Dark Ages, an idealistic mason, Tom Builder (Rufus Sewell) sets out on a quest of erecting a glorious Cathedral bathed in light. But when that light threatens to illuminate the dark secrets of ambitious Bishop Waleran Bigod (Ian McShane) and the battling progeny of King Henry, Queen Maud (Alison Pill) and King Stephen (Tony Curran), they’ll stop at nothing to keep those secrets safe!

The epic miniseries also stars Matthew MacFadyen (Frost/Nixon) as Prior Philip, Hayley Atwell (Love Hate) as the beautiful noblewoman Aliena and Donald Sutherland (Dirty Sexy Money) as Bartholomew.

The Pillars of the Earth will be out on DVD on November 23, 2010.
