History channel is remaking “Roots”

The 12-hour classic high-rated 1977 miniseries is being remade as an eight-hour miniseries that, according to Deadline, “will draw both on the book and the original mini from a contemporary perspective.” A History exec adds: “We would like to revive that cultural icon for a new audience.”
