Robert Jordan’s ‘Wheel of Time’ TV Series coming soon~

Love love LOVE the WoT series. You can read previous posts on it here. Was lucky enough to meet Robert Jordan, God Bless him, and he was an absolute sweetheart. As is Brandon Sanderson who worked with Harriet McDougal, Robert’s widow, to finish the series and who spent hours patiently signing books nationwide. Here is the panel from Phoenix Comicon in 2013:

TOR:

 …In the wake of the success of Game of Thrones, and considering the staggering amount of fantasy and sci-fi book properties that have been optioned for TV and film, the absence of The Wheel of Time has been eyebrow-raising. (Or in the parlance of the series itself, perhaps the better term is “sniff producing”?) Fans of the series were given a glimpse into the legal tangle preventing WOT’s emergence onto the small screen on February 9, 2015, when a sudden pilot episode dubbed “Winter Dragon” aired in the early A.M. hours on the FXX Network.

McDougal released a statement clarifying that the pilot was made without her knowledge, prompting Red Eagle Entertainment, the production company behind the pilot, to issue a lawsuit. (Which they later withdrew.) A more detailed account of the behind-the-scenes machinations can be found at io9, but regardless of the details, overall it seemed as if fans would have to wait a very long time to see Jordan’s work on screen in a large-scale production.

Now, the wait is seemingly over.
