Variety and IGN announced today that the long-awaited TV show adaptation of The Eye of The World has finally landed at a production studio with a named writer and executive producer.
Rafe Judkins, perhaps best known for his work on Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, will be the lead writer and executive producer. The other executive producers named in the articles are Ted Field, Mike Weber, Darren Lemke, Rick Selvage, Larry Mondragon, and Harriet McDougal. Sony Pictures will serve as the production studio along with Red Eagle Entertainment and Radar Pictures.These announcements come a day before the annual JordanCon convention, where fans are gathering in Atlanta. The timing seems fitting, since we learned about the intentions of a Wheel of Time based television series at last year's convention, during a panel in which Harriet teased an announcement coming "very soon."IGN also have a quick recap of the Wheel of Time's plot, which is worth a watch as well.It's important to note that although this is a positive step forward for the show, no timeframe or distribution network has been announced. Details are sparse, but it seems as though the show is still in the very early stages of development.We will post more as we learn it. We have very high hopes that this will be the amazing product we've all been waiting for.
