Wheel of Time

An adaptation of the Robert Jordan fantasy novel series Wheel of Time is finally moving forward with Sony Pictures Television. This project has been in and out of development since the year 2000, but now it's going to happen as a TV series.

There's an abundance of content to adapt as there are 14 novels in the series that began in 1990 with "The Eye of the World" and ended in 2007 with "A Memory of Light". The story follows the quest to find the Dragon Reborn, who it is said will help unite forces to combat The Dark One. Here's a brief description:

   Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time is a story that takes place both in our past and our future. In his fantasy world, the Dark One, the embodiment of pure evil, is breaking free from his prison. The overall plot is about a man who learns that he is the reincarnation of the world's messiah and is once again destined to save the world from the Dark One -- but possibly destroy it in the process. This saga is not only his story, but the story of an entire world's struggle to deal with war and change, destruction and hope.

I haven't read all the books yet, but there's no doubt that this could be an incredible and epic series if it's done right with the right talent. According to Variety, Rafe Judkins is set to write and executive produce the series. If you're not familiar with his work, he's worked on shows such as Agents of SHIELD, the Netflix series Hemlock Grove, and the NBC series Chuck. That's not a bad resume.

The series has previously been described as being a "cutting edge" TV series by consulting producer Harriet McDougal, who is the widow of author Robert Jordan. There aren't really any other details on the series, but if you're a fan of the book series it's definitely time to get excited! I'm looking forward to seeing how this series comes together.

I've never heard of the novels or the rumors of this series. I've also become a bit jaded with the 'swords & sorcery' type films I've seen, the Mythica franchise being one of them. I'll have to see some rave reviews before I'll give such a series a try.

Ah maybe, but it's too long to read, lol - If more than 10 lines, I normally skip.
