Cynthia Nixon To Star In $44 Million Miniseries!

cynthia nixon to star in pricey miniseries

It’s been an exciting few months for Sex and the City alum Cynthia Nixon!

Last we heard from Cynthia, we were thrilled to announce that her GF Christine Marinoni gave birth to baby boy Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni!

Now, it looks like Cynthia’s career is going just as well as her personal life, because she’s landed a leading role in Ridley & Tony Scott’s eight-hour Starz miniseries World Without End.

The show is based on Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth, and it co-stars Miranda Richardson, Ben Chaplin, and The DuchessCharlotte Riley.

Here’s how the show’s being described:

“Set in England 200 years after the events in Pillars, World chronicles tough times for ordinary citizens who are being hit with enormous taxes by the King, the Church as England teeters on the brink of a devastating 100-year war with France, and Europe is bracing for a terrible plague, which will wipe out a third of the continent’s population.”

“The mini centers on Caris (Riley), a visionary woman who, with her lover Merthin, builds a community that stands up to the Crown and the Church.”

We’re intrigued, and as always, we’ll be excited to see Cynthia on the small screen!

Will U check out the pricey miniseries World Without End when it premieres?
