Paris-headquartered Pernel Media is prepping a 90-minute film chronicling the excavation of a lost city founded by Egyptian pharaoh Ramses.
Lost City of Ramses the Great, commissioned by France Télévisions Group, will have exclusive access to an expedition led by German archaeologist Henning Franzmeier to excavate the site of Pi-Ramesses.
The production team will use the team’s findings and scans to create detailed 3D CGI reconstructions of the lost palace and buildings of the ancient Egyptian city.
The special is directed by Laurent Portes (In the Footsteps Of Attila The Hun). Executive producer is Fabrice Frank for Pernel Media, and Amandine Picault commissioned the project for France Télévisions Group.
“After the global success of our archeology specials Attila The Hun and Trojan War we are very excited to triple down on our expertise in archeological expeditions with exclusive access,” said Samuel Kissous, president of Pernel Media, in a statement.
