Lorne Balfe is scoring the upcoming mini-series Restless. The two-part movie based on a novel by William Boyd (Chaplin) stars Hayley Atwell, Rufus Sewell, Michelle Dockery, Michael Gambon and Charlotte Rampling. Edward Hall has directed the project and Hilary Bevan Jones (Private Radio, The Girl in the Cafe) and Paul Frift are producing for Endor Productions. William Boyd has also written the teleplay and is executive producing with Matthew Read for BBC and Christian Vesper for Sundance Channel. The mini-series follows a daughter who discovers that her mother was recruited as a spy during World War II. Restless was shot this summer in South Africa and the UK and is set to premiere in the US on December 7, 2012 on the Sundance Channel.
