William Wallace only needed one thing: freedom. But clearly he’s also on board with a TV deal, as a Braveheart television series is in the works.
In 1996, Braveheart beat out astronauts, pigs, Jane Austen and Pablo Neruda as the Academy’s Best Picture. Since then, the movie has lasted as a modern classic. And now, in this era where television’s clout is on the rise, Braveheart will get a scripted drama series, centering on the life and backstory of hero William Wallace (played in the film by Mel Gibson).
