[Midkemia] The Riftwar Saga TV Series

BCDF Pictures Acquires Fantasy Book Series ‘The Riftwar Saga’ For TV Adaptation

Thought this might interest anyone who had read these books from the 80s by Raymond E. Feist (Magician: Apprentice et al.), based on a 70s D&D/Tékumel crossover campaign from U.C. San Diego. Ray posted on his mailing list:
Thanks for the enthusiasm (not to mention the support over the years), folks.

It’s premature to speculate on which network/streaming service might be interested. Some have other projects in the pipe already, have budget issues, just don’t want another fantasy item (or want one), etc.

One of the reasons I’m with BCDF is the people I met are smart and I’ll leave making the deals in their capable hands. I spent five years (quietly, which is why no one heard about it) as a partner with a producer who had a good concept for our relationship, but I found out after we parted no one wanted to work with the guy for reasons having nothing to do with my property. Live and learn.

Anyway, this is the first step. Let’s see where it goes.

Wow, for some reason I missed this.

I would love to see a TV show based on these novels! :)

The series started in the 1980s, but he is still publishing new novels in the series.

I believe he is now on a totally new series (finally). The last Midkemia book "Magician's End" was published in 2013.
(I quite like it, the series did rather get lost for a while and he had a huge amount of wrpping up to do, but he did manage reasonably well to pull it off.)
