DM News:Rafe Judkins May Be Starting Wheel of Time Script

Recommended Posts

Rafe Judkins, the writer and showrunner for a potential Wheel of Time television series sent out a tweet earlier this week showing off his worn copies of the first three novels.  Many have speculated that this means Judkins is starting to work on a script for the show.

Adam Whitehead  sums up the current rights and details of the show on his website, stating :

Although Sony have committed to producing the Wheel of Time TV show, they have not yet found a network production partner. According to strong rumours, they were close to a deal with Amazon TV which was then relegated by Amazon's decision to develop a Lord of the Rings prequel project instead. Although it's not impossible that Amazon would develop a second very expensive epic fantasy series (they can afford it), it would seem to make the project less likely.

Other possible partners mostly seem to be sewn up with their own fantasy projects: Netflix with The Witcher, Showtime with The Kingkiller Chronicle prequel series, Starz with American Gods (and Outlander), SyFy with The Magicians and Paramount with Shannara. That leaves some possibilities, such as CBS All Access (who need more content beyond Star Trek: Discovery, stat), AMC (although they are unlikely to be able to afford it) or FX.

FX is an interesting possibility, both for their own productions (including the high-budget, well-regarded Fargo), the fact they aired the "Winter Dragon" pilot/advert thing from three years ago and they are now owned by Disney, who may be interested in a big epic fantasy project, either for FX, Hulu or their new, adult-oriented streaming channel they are currently developing (which will have both a Star Wars live-action show and a Marvel Cinematic Universe series for its launch in 2019 or 2020).

 

We are all very anxious to see the show find a home, and having a fan at the helm definitely gives me hope!  If you want to keep up to date with all the latest information, you can follow Judkins on Twitter.

    • Why do you guys think 4-6 states should tell the other 40something what to do? It's just because they have more people? Our founding fathers rejected that form of government for a reason. Your rights in Wyoming will be subject to the sensibilities and whims of New York. That is not what they wanted for this nation or its people.
    • Maybe that was a mistake.     I think you're underestimating Pompeo. This is his show. Trump may be getting the credit but Pompeo is doing the work and he's not a guy I would want to cross. With that said even if you're right about that I think fake negotiations are better than actual war preparations.   We do this sort of thing routinely under various administrations.  Also how is this an example of the U.S. Being ignored?     Not an example of us being ignores. Also what do you want, endless war in the mideast? Should we just invade Turkey and get it over with?   Not an example etc etc. This isn't our business we need to stop being the world police.   Not an example etc etc   Not an example etc etc etc    I agree here. The Saudis are not our friends we should cut ties immediately.   Changing the goalposts.
    • Sounds a lot like Pizzagate. You're not one of those conspiracy theorists are you?
    • Perrin is shocked that there might be wolves at the beginning of the trip. Easter egg
