Philip Pullman’s epic trilogy, His Dark Materials (The Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass) is being adapted for TV. It follows the coming of age of two children Lyra Belacqua and Will Parry as they explore a series of parallel universes.

Written by Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), the series is directed by Tom Hooper (Les Miserables).
