Jericho To Be Made Into Movie

U.S. TV drama JERICHO is set for a comeback - a big screen version of the short lived series is under development.
The show, a portrayal of America post-nuclear attacks, was scrapped by network CBS after its first full season due to poor ratings.
But a campaign by a devoted group of fans convinced network executives to bring the show back for a seven-episode second season, before flagging ratings once more resulted in the series being cancelled in 2008.
But now the programme's stars, including Skeet Ulrich and Ashley Scott, are set to reprise their roles on the big screen, according to executive producer Jon Turteltaub.
He tells Moviehole.net, "We're developing a feature for Jericho. It would not require you to have seen the TV show, but it get into life after an event like this on a national scale. It would be the bigger, full on American version of what’s going on beyond the town in Jericho."
