Amazon Studios officially announced that it has greenlit a one-hour action fantasy adaptation of The Wheel of Time to series, with Rafe Judkins (Agents of SHIELD, Chuck) serving as showrunner.
The Wheel of Time series is based on Robert Jordan’s best-selling fantasy novels, which according to an Amazon press release, “have sold more than 90 million copies worldwide.” Judkins, who is also adapting the books, gave the world a sneak peek at the first script in a twitter post that you can see right here.
Per Amazon, “The Wheel of Time is set in a sprawling, epic world where magic exists, but only women can use it. Meaning that in this series — women hold the keys to power. The story follows Moiraine, a member of the shadowy and influential all-female organization called the ‘Aes Sedai’ as she embarks on a dangerous, world-spanning journey with five young men and women. Moiraine’s interested in these five because she believes one of them might be the reincarnation of an incredibly powerful individual, whom prophecies say will either save humanity or destroy it.”
