Peter Jackson's offsider to make 'Game of Thrones'-style show in NZ

Sir Richard Taylor's production company is making a television drama that will showcase New Zealand's scenery around the world.
Based on New York Times bestseller The Maid, the series is yet to be named, but has been described as a Game of Thrones-style drama.
Work is expected to begin in the new year.
Taylor is the co-founder of Pukeko Pictures, which recently teamed up with international distribution company FremantleMedia to work on the series.
He described the series as ''the perfect fit for everything New Zealand has to offer''.
''From our spectacular landscapes to the award-winning team here at Weta Workshop - an epic drama that can showcase everything from conceptual design through to manufacturing; utilising all the skills we have honed on our feature work."
The series will be written by Craig Pearce, whose credits include co-writing Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge, and the upcoming The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire.
The Maid, by Kimberley Cutter, is the story of a peasant girl based on Joan of Arc who believes she is sent by God to save France.
Should be good.
