BBC Production of "The Ruby in the Smoke"

The Scotsman reported over the weekend that the BBC will be producing Philip Pullman's The Ruby in the Smoke.

Here's the quote:
  • "With a big-budget film version of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy scheduled for next year, the BBC has cleverly dusted down the first of Pullman's earlier quartet of novels for their Christmas adaptation. Current flavour of the month actress Billie Piper takes on the role of Sally Lockhart, a feisty orphan who is as accomplished with a pistol as with accountancy. "

I wonder if this production will make it over to the States...
