Jeffrey Archer novels to get big and small screen adaptations

Jeffrey Archer’s best-selling novel, The Eleventh Commandment, is getting a TV adaptation. Producer Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead, Punisher: War Zone) is teaming up with New Franchise Media to bring the CIA thriller to a television audience. Hurd said in a statement: “Jeffrey Archer’s storytelling is compelling, character driven and perfect for television — full of fast-paced, high-stakes danger.” The official description for The Eleventh Commandment reads: “Connor Fitzgerald is the CIA’s most deadly assassin, hiding the details of his career from his family. Only days from his retirement from the Agency, he comes across an enemy he cannot handle, the Director of the CIA, bent on making Connor the fall guy for a phony assassination on a Russian presidential candidate that could inadvertently trigger World War III.” Jeffrey Archer says: “Gale Anne Hurd’s amazing pedigree in bringing action-oriented entertainment to the screen puts her among the best in the business. I am delighted to be working with her.” Just days earlier, New Franchise Media also announced that Archer’s bestselling espionage thriller, A Matter of Honour, is getting the big screen treatment by Frank Marshall, who produced the Bourne films.
