LOS ANGELES, Dec 4 — With the help of Hollywood actress Halle Berry as a producer, the American network dedicated to exploring the past will develop a miniseries on the African general who challenged the Roman Empire.

The project, currently being developed under the working title “Hannibal,” will revisit the story of the Carthaginian politician and military commander who instigated the Second Punic War between his armies and those of the Roman Empire. This miniseries on the life of the great strategist will be penned by Jeffrey Caine, the screenwriter on the 17th Bond movie, “GoldenEye.”

Once a rare presence in the world of TV, Halle Berry has recently agreed to star in Steven Spielberg’s science-fiction series “Extant,” which will air in summer 2014 on CBS. — AFP Relaxnews
