Amazon to Adapt The Wheel of Time for a New Series
Amazon will be adapting Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time into a new series. The series will be released by Amazon Prime Video to over 200 countries and territories around the world.
The Wheel of Time takes place in a world of magic, where only women have the power to use it. It focuses on the story of Moiraine, the leader of the organization ‘Aes Sedai', who takes a journey around the world with five young men and women to follow prophecy.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Chuck writer Rafe Judkins will be adapting the script and serving as showrunner and executive producer. Also producing are Rick Selvage and Larry Mondragon from Red Eagle Entertainment, Ted Field and Mike Weber from Radar Pictures and Darren Lemke, who produced Shrek Forever After. Harriet McDougal will be a consulting producer.
Amazon Studios' Jennifer Salke said, "The Wheel of Time is endlessly fascinating and resonates hugely with fans as one of the best-selling global properties, and we were drawn to its timely narrative featuring powerful women at the core. We're thrilled to extend our relationship with devotees who've found the book series transformative and welcome new ones by bringing it to life on Prime Video for viewers worldwide."
"For so many people, including me, this book series has served as a world to escape to, to lose yourself in, to devour and inhabit completely. And I couldn't be more honored to be the one finally bringing that world to life on screen, for old fans to lose themselves in all over again and new fans to discover for the very first time", said Judkins.
