From executive producers Tony and Ridley Scott, the upcoming epic thriller follows two girls from the present day and the 13th century whose lives are intertwined by the search for the true Grail.

Kate Mosse's worldwide bestseller "" is adapted into a miniseries of the same title by writer Adrian Hodges and it has been previewed in a trailer. The story begins as modern-day archeologist Alice Tanner (Vanessa Kirby) finds skeletal remains and a labyrinth-engraved ring in a cave.

She then sees events from 13th century Carcassonne, during which 17-year-old Alais Pelletier () is given a task to protect three hidden books - The Book of Words, The Book of Potions and The Book of Numbers. Together, these tomes hold the secret of the true Grail, which dates back to the Ancient Egyptian era many years before Christ.

As Alais and those closest to her must battle to protect the secret from others, including her cruelly manipulative sister Oriane, Alice faces a race against time to put together the curiously familiar pieces of a jigsaw puzzle representing her long-buried history.

Supporting the epic thriller are the likes of , , , Katie McGrath, John Lynch and Tony Curran. Ridley Scott and his late brother Tony Scott are among the executive producers of the show, which is directed by Christopher Smith.

There is still no word on which U.S. network that will air the miniseries.
