Harriet McDougal, Wheel of Time (WoT) novel editor and widow of late author Robert Jordan, announced in late April of 2016 that there was to be a Wheel of Time TV series. Clearing up legal and production issues (FINALLY!), Amazon announced in October of 2018 that it will be producing the series with Rafe Judkins (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Chuck) as showrunner.
More recently, on the glacial timeline, Amazon cast the series first actor, Rosamund Pike as Moiraine Damodred. More importantly, for us, is the announcement that Brandon Sanderson has been hired to serve as a consulting producer along with Harriet McDougal.
We were never very keen on ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. but we’re hopeful the team can give the series a proper treatment. We’re also very hopeful (read WTFHOW?) about the production budget being enough to properly portray the WoT world and not end up looking like a close-up camera shot of a 2nd rate studio set.
Fingers crossed and hearts hopeful!
