Series on Austrian empress Sisi in works

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Germany's Story House Pictures and Austria-based Satel Film are developing a series based on the life of Austrian Empress Elisabeth II, known as Sisi.

The project is the second period drama on Sisi, after Patrick Wachsberger and Pascal Breton's Picture Perfect Company announced a series based on the books detailing the life of the strong-willed empress.

According to Variety, Andreas Gutzeit and Heinrich Ambrosch are the producers of the Story House-Satel Film project.

The series will be told from the perspective of her closest confidants and takes a new look at its character's life as she evolves from the young Sisi into Empress Elisabeth.

Dorothee Schon and Sabine Thor-Wiedemann are attached as writers.

"'Sisi' is a premium TV series that revives the splendour of the Habsburg monarchy and creates a memorable figure. Audiences all over the world will fall in love with her all over again," Gutzeit said.
