'Wizard's First Rule' Changes Name

ABC's syndication unit has retitled its upcoming adventure series "Wizard's First Rule" to "Legend of the Seeker," the producers announced today at Comic-Con. The reason: The old title reflected one book in the series of books upon which the show is based.

"Legend of the Seeker" marks ABC Studios' first foray into broadcast syndication. The first-run, one-hour weekly series has been sold into 95% of U.S. markets.

Disney-ABC Domestic Television also announced that actors Bruce Spence, Jay Laga'aia and Craig Parker will join the cast, which is led by Craig Horner and Bridget Regan.
