By Fox. I know, boo and all that. You were excited and now you're like why? Someone suggested this might be Fox's answer to Game of Thrones. Either way, it's one of my top two favourite fantasy series, so I'll at least give the TV adaptation a chance. And hey, FX is a Fox channel and has at least 3 shows I like (Wilfred, Justified, Archer). So if it ends up being there, it could be pretty good.
Deadline has just announced that 20th Century Fox has optioned the television rights to Patrick Rothfuss’ epic fantasy trilogy The Kingkiller Chronicles to develop into an ongoing series. Eric Heisserer (Hours, The Thing) is attached to adapt the series as its executive producer.
The show will begin with the events of The Name of the Wind and follow through the other two books in the trilogy. No word yet on how the show will otherwise be structured, or if they will incorporate aspects of Rothfuss’ planned works after the Kingkiller trilogy.
