Deadline reports that the History Channel will remake the historical miniseries; Roots which was originally aired on ABC in 1977.

The History Channel bought the rights to the movie from the son of the executive producer of Roots, Mark Wolper. They're hoping to cash in on the current trend in film where there have been a handful of project released about Slavery (The Butler, Django, 12 Years a Slave, etc.).
