Stephen King TV Series Adaptation in the Works — Will It Fill the Void Left by ‘Game of Thrones’?

May 17, 2019  •  Post A Comment

This Sunday’s finale of “Game of Thrones” will leave a void on television for fans of the HBO fantasy series, but Deadline reports that there’s a new project in the works that might help fill that void.

“Maybe there’s epic fantasy life beyond Westeros,” Deadline reports. “How about an epic fantasy series adaptation of a bestselling Stephen King novel, one that taps into the mythology of King’s epic ‘Dark Tower’ and even shares a major villain character from the author’s masterwork, ‘The Stand’?”

The report says Hulu has a deal in place to develop a pilot based on King’s novel “Eyes of the Dragon,” first published in 1984.

“It has the requisite faeries, elves and dragons of the fantasy fare — sans the fiery genocide and sexual brutality that was a trademark of ‘GOT,'” Deadline notes.

Seth Grahame-Smith is writing the new project’s opening episode and serving as the showrunner, according to Deadline, with Grahame-Smith and his KatzSmith partner David Katzenberg executive producing along with Bill Haber, Roy Lee and Jon Berg.

The project comes from Fox 21.
