Even while many Filipinos are already counting down the days to the premiere of US hit TV ‘fantaseries’ “Legend of the Seeker” on SCI FI channel on Sept. 9, 10 p.m., Manila Bulletin Online whets their appetite further by giving 10 facts about the show:

…(1) The executive producer of the show is Sam Raimi of “Spider-Man” movie trilogy-fame. According to Wikipedia, he became interested in doing the series after his partner Joshua Donen encouraged him to read the book on which the show is based, “The Sword of Truth.”

…8) The second season of “Legend of the Seeker” has begun filming in July 2009. That one will be based on the book “Stone of Tears,” the 2nd installment in the “Wizard’s First Rule” series by author Terry Goodkind. It will have 22 episodes.
