History network in deal to remake ‘Roots’

NEW YORK (AP) — A remake of the groundbreaking television miniseries “Roots” is in the works at the History network.

The network said Tuesday that it had reached a deal with Mark Wolper, whose father, David, made the 1977 “Roots” miniseries, to acquire the rights to remake it. The project is in development, meaning there’s a possibility it won’t be made, but the commitment makes it likely the new series will appear some time in 2015.

The first “Roots” series was a television sensation, gripping the country with its story of generations of a slave family.

History has been particularly successful with miniseries lately, including “The Bible” and “Hatfields & McCoys.”
