The Pillars of the Earth teaser trailer and promotional stills from Starz

A new teaser trailer and promotional photos have just been released for Matthew Macfadyen and Donald Sutherland's upcoming “The Pillars of the Earth” (Ken Follett’s international bestselling masterpiece), an epic 8-part miniseries premiering July 23 on Starz

Pillars is directed by Sergio Mimica-Gezzan and produced by a group that includes Ridley & Tony Scott’s SCOTT FREE production company. There are some cast photos (including MM and Donald S.) over at the facebook page as well or check them out below!

Here's the synopsis (via IMDB):  
The Pillars of the Earth is set against a backdrop of war, religious strife and power struggles which tears lives and families apart. In that time, there rises a magnificent Cathedral in Kingsbridge. Against the backdrop, love-stories entwine: Tom, the master builder, Aliena, the noblewoman, the sadistic Lord William, Philip, the prior of Kingsbridge, Jack, the artist in stone work and Ellen, the woman from the forest who casts a curse. At once, this is a sensuous and enduring love story and an epic that shines with the fierce spirit of a passionate age. Follett masterfully weaves these stories through political turmoil of 12th century England, creating a relevant and viable world for today’s audience and for generations to come.
