Church of Satan Sigil of Baphomet

John Milton’s “Paradise Lost” has been announced with Martin Freeman (“The Hobbit” and BBC’s “Sherlock”) producing. Paradise Lost is the 1667 poem which describes the fall of Satan and his seduction of Eve to eat of the Fruit of Knowledge. Attempts have been made in the past to make a live movie with Australian Director Alex Proyas (“The Crow” and “I Robot”), however production stopped due to budget restrictions.

Now English company, Dancing Ledge Productions and Martin Freeman are bringing the classic to life via a TV series. Dancing Ledge CEO Laurence Bowen noted that “Paradise Lost is like a biblical “Games of Thrones” transporting the reader into an internecine world of political intrigue and incredible violence. At stake? The future of mankind. There’s never been a better time for big, original, bold drama series and Martin and I both feel incredibly inspired by the material.”

Actor/Producer Martin Freeman added: “Paradise Lost is epic, exciting and surprisingly modern. And maybe the first time the devil gets all the best tunes!”

Finally, Satan gets his due and Satanists and Church of Satan members might look forward to finally seeing the media portrayal of Satan we have been longing for years!
