Already a Hit Abroad, 'Wolf Hall' Miniseries Comes to PBS

Hosted by and

Award-winning author Hilary Mantel shined a new light on Thomas Cromwell, Henry VIII's right-hand man, in her books Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies. Producer Colin Callender adapted those books for a TV miniseries that was a ratings and critical hit in the UK earlier this year. Now, Mantel's work is having its U.S. debut on PBS. Mantel and Callender share how they brought the books to life on television.
