    I haven't actually seen the two hour pilot of this but love the book series (live in the wrong country!) Does anyone know if it is being picked up? I haven't heard anything but was hoping that someone else had heard/read something insightful.

    It started on the BBC yesterday and six more episodes have been produced in addition to the feature length pilot. All seven episodes will begin airing on HBO at the end of March. No idea when to expect them in Australia unfortunately.

    It might be put up for an Emmy, but it surely won't win any awards. A very boring show and not posting a great number of viewers will definitely hurt this show.

    I heard the ratings are pretty good here in the US. And I know for a fact BBC's ratings were very strong. It's at least getting nominated for an EMMY, but idk if they'd win for anything but cinematography.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it gets renewed. HBO's been having luck with a lot of it's shows lately.
