Shannara TV Series Greenlit By MTV

You know, I’m like the one person in my family who never read any of the Shannara books. I know all the titles from seeing them on the bookshelves at my parent’s house, but I literally know nothing about them. But maybe I will now, as Terry Brooks announced today that the much discussed ten episode TV series based off “The Elfstones of Shannara” has been greenlit by MTV.

In a post to his website, Brooks said:

Miles Millar and Al Gough are writing the series, and have done an amazing job with the scripts they’ve written at this point. I really couldn’t be happier with how it’s all coming together, and I am very much involved in the process.

Jonathan Liebesman will now direct the first 2 episodes.

I am Executive Producing along with Al Gough, Miles Millar, Jon Favreau, Jonathan Liebesman, and Dan Farah, who I began this long journey with several years ago. Sonar Entertainment is our studio partner. It’s a terrific team and I greatly appreciate and respect each and every person on it.
