Another prestige project gets the go ahead at HBO and it sounds, well, prestigious. On top of their latest, and impressive, slate of mini-series and films (including the gorgeous Mildred Pierce) HBO just green-lit a new five-parter set during The Great War... you know, WWI. Based on the four part series by British writer Madox Ford, Parade's End begins soon at Home Box Office Entertainment.

The Hollywood Reporter made the announcement also adding that Benedict Cumberbatch (from BBC's awesome series Sherlock) and Rebecca Hall are attached to star in the Tom Stoppard (Oscar winner for Shakespeare in Love) scripted, Susanna White (Generation Kill) directed mini-series. THR describes the show as "a love triangle between a conservative English aristocrat (Cumberbatch), his mean socialite wife (Hall) and a young suffragette."

No word yet on who will play the 'suffragette' but she best have some talent if she intends to keep up with the likes of Cumberbatch and Hall (especially when delivering the lines of Tom Stoppard).

Production on the series isn't said to begin until the fall so it might be some time before we get to watch Parade's End.
