[15.44 - French Time] ITV1 has commissioned a major drama about the sinking of the Titanic.

The miniseries, edited in 4 x 60-minute and 2 x 90-minute versions, will be timed to air around the 100th anniversary of the tragedy and will be penned by English actor, novelist, film director and Oscar-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park).

It will be produced by Deep Indigo Productions (Bleak House), ITV Studios and co-produced by Lookout Point. Broadcast reports that post production and all CGI and digital effects will be produced in Canada and that talks with potential international partners, including the US, are underway.

Another major project written by Fellowes, Downton Abbey (1 x 90-minute and 6 x 60-minute), will be aired this month on ITV1.
