Holmes reprised her role in The Kennedys: After Camelot, a four-part sequel released on April 2, 2017. She was also executive producer of the miniseries and directed an episode, with Jon Cassar returning to direct the remaining three episodes.
Although Michener began his novel in prehistory, the series itself begins with elements from Chapter 4 of the book, "The Many Coups of Lame Beaver." The novel devotes an entire section to Kurt Brumbaugh's development of Central Beet company; the miniseries, however, makes only passing reference to it. The Wendells use the badger game to blackmail the town pastor out of his house in the miniseries, but in the book they get the house from a local businessman. In the miniseries, Morgan Wendell tries to cover up his family's shady history, but in the book he speaks openly about the murder and his father's admiration of the sheriff to the author- who in turn agrees to publish the facts of the killing after the election. Paul Garrett is in his 50s and is Jim and Charlotte Lloyd's grandson in the miniseries, but he is in his early 40s in the novel and is Jim and Charlotte's great-grandson. The miniseries skips a generation for the sake of simplicity. This skipped generation would have revealed that Paul Garrett is also a descendant of Maxwell & Lisette Mercy, Levi & Lucinda Zendt, and John Skimmerhorn (son of Colonel Skimmerhorn).
Worried about not disappointing the fans so much, King took six months just to write one draft, "and then there were two more." King wrote six drafts of the miniseries before production began. Only minor changes were made in writing the miniseries, and while it's not based on the 1990 expanded version of the novel, the first scenes of the miniseries are taken from that edition. ABC still had discussions with King and Garris about certain plot elements likely not following the practices, such as the use of a mummified child doll, a man on the cross wearing a crown of drug needles with the sign "Drug Addict" on his neck, and open-eyed corpses. A lot of these, however, were kept in the final product because of expectations from fans of The Stand.
In June 1992, King figured that a miniseries was a way to present most of the novel's contents without having to deal with the other Broadcast Standards and Practices regular television shows face. He spent four months writing a 420-page first draft without using his or Rospo's theatrical film drafts as reference. He submitted the draft to ABC, which offered King the ability for the script to be produced just days after submission. ABC used the draft and the success of It (1990) in making this offer. The network also had to follow conditions that it couldn't throw too many Standards and Practices at him that would ruin the spirit of the source material.

In 1993, the BBC produced a television miniseries based on the book, starring Lindsay Duncan and John Thaw, with appearances from Alfred Molina and James Fleet amongst others. Unlike the book, the mini series was not well received by critics; A Year in Provence was later placed at number ten on a Radio Times list of the worst television programmes ever made with the writer, John Naughton, describing it as a "smugathon ... which achieved the near impossible – creating a John Thaw vehicle nobody liked".

The TV miniseries The Last Templar was criticized in Turkey by the media for misrepresenting the geography of Turkey as that of an Arabian country. In the movie, the events that take place in supposed Turkey are set in "Bodrum", which is a green region with beautiful beaches and landscape. However, the movie shows the Turkish city as an empty desert. This was criticized in Turkey for further reinforcing the misconception in the minds of average Canadians that Turkey is an arid, empty country with no developments and covered with deserts similar to those found in other countries.
