The New Discworld TV Movie Is in the Mail

I like to think that UK’s SkyTV is doing the Lord’s working by adapting Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books into TV movies. I mean, I’m not sure which Lord — I’m guessing Om, but that’s probably because Small Gods is still my favorite Discworld novel — but at any rate it’s always good to see Pratchett’s work in action. Going Postal will premiere on SkyTV near the end of May, and stars Richard Coyle — who you might recognize as the very weird dude on Coupling — as Moist von Lipwig, a criminal who chooses to overhaul Ankh-Morpork’s postal service instead of death, and discovers he got the raw end of that deal. Thanks to Tredlow for the tip.
