Based on the novels (which is a very good thing), the live action series will be produced by Fireworks Television and has all the support of Hasbro/Wizards of the Coast. No word on which novels will be used. For my money, I’d love to see the Icewind Dale gang.
One thing that bothered me about the D&D movie was that will all the great literature behind the game, why the script sucked so badly. Hopefully this can remedy that error.
I’ll dig around for more information and as soon as I find something tangible I’ll post it.
