Timberman/Beverly Productions picks up the option for God’s Hotel

Just back from my walking/pilgrimage tour in Burgundy. We started in Troyes, where the first European fairs started in the twelfth century, and we ended in Charite sur Loire, built up in the fourteenth  century, and on the way passed through Vezelay. It started as a walking tour, but turned into a pilgrimage after Vezelay. This part of France is depopulated, or perhaps better, reforested and re-animaled, and it is beautiful, quiet and very far away.

In the meantime, Timberman/Beverly Productions, on the lot at CBS, picked up the option to turn God’s Hotel into a television series.

There is other exciting news in the offing, too.

Review in Canada’s Macleans

She seems to have gotten the overall story just right.
