London – FremantleMedia International has completed a deal with BBC Four for the German drama Reformation. The 2 x 120’ drama will air alongside a number of factual programmes marking the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Reformation, is the story of Martin Luther, the visionary reformer and one of the most important religious figures in history.
500 years ago a revolutionary priest changed the face of Christendom and the path of European civilization forever. Risking his life, academic reputation, facing damnation and purgatory in 1517, he pinned his inflammatory 95 Theses to the church door in the Catholic Church and the Western World would never be the same again. His name was Martin Luther.
