Starz is teaming with book publisher Penguin Group to create an electronic version of one of its miniseries for three Apple products, reports B&C.
The eight-hour television series of Ken Follett’s "The Pillars of Earth" will debut on Friday, July 23, while the ebook edition for the iPad will go on sale today, July 20th, the story says.
The "amplified edition" costs $12.99 and includes 34 short videos, artwork and original music from the television series, the article adds.
Starz came to Penguin about three months ago with the concept of creating a special "The Pillars of the Earth" edition for iPad, and executives from both companies worked on the project. A version for the iPod Touch and iPhone will be released later this week, the story says.
