Thursday I attended the Wizard's First Rule panel at the San Diego Comic Con. The executive producers Sam Raimi, Ken Billar, and Rob Tapert were speaking with writer Terry Goodkind about this new project. They announced a new title for the new TV series as Legend of the Seeker. The plans are for 22 episodes, the first episode is to air on November 1, 2008.
Their biggest emphasis was to be true to the characters. It will be interesting to see how they will make this epic love story into an episodic TV series. They are four days into shooting for the first two episodes in New Zealand. Rob said the fifth episode scrip just hit his desk so here is hopping they get all 22 episodes made.
Sam Rami news, he is waiting on the script for Spiderman 4, so yes, it is being made.
