Terry Brooks Shannara fantasy series to be adapted for TV

by on Sep.11, 2012, under Books, Television

Variety reports that Sonar Entertainment has acquired the rights to Terry Brooks long-running bestseller Shannara fantasy series and plans to adapt it for television in partnership with Farah Films.

Plans are to start the first season based on The Elfstones of Shannara, the second book of the original trilogy (with The Sword of Shannara and The Wishsong of Shannara).

No distribution outlet has been signed yet.

Warner Bros had previously owned the rights and planned to adapt a movie directed by Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), but the rights reverted in 2010.

The Shannara stories are based hundreds of years in the future in a post-apocalyptic Earth that has reverted to medieval times and in which magic has re-emerged. The 20th book, Wards of Faerie, was just released and is the first of a new trilogy, The Dark Legacy of Shannara.

Terra Nova released on DVD today

by on Sep.11, 2012, under Television

In case you missed it (like I apparently did), the short-lived Fox series (do we say that too much? 🙂 ) Terra Nova comes to DVD today!

The DVD set includes 4 discs for all 11 episodes plus bonus features including deleted scenes, a gag real, and more! Apparently, mysteriously no Blu-ray release is planned at this time…

The show was good, but was likely too expensive to continue due to the massive visual effects, and an agreement couldn’t be reached on a second cheaper season. But that doesn’t mean the story ended – a motion comic will continue the series at terranovastory.com, which appears to be for purchasers of the discs…so order your discs today (and help us out if you use the above links!)
