Red Eagle Entertainment and Sony Make Deal to Develop ‘Wheel of Time’ Television Series

Robert Jordan’s fantasy epic The Wheel of Time is one step closer to showing up on our television screens. Variety is reporting that Red Eagle Entertainment and Sony have reached a deal to develop a series based on the fourteen book saga. Radar Pictures will also produce.

Rafe Judkins has been hired to write and showrun the series, and Jordan’s widow Harriet McDougal will serve as a consulting producer.

Red Eagle Entertainment has been trying to get this deal done with Sony for two years now, and went so far as to shoot a bizarre adaptation of the prologue of The Eye of the World called Winter Dragon to keep the rights. I’m honestly amazed the project is moving along this far.

Let’s see what happens next, shall we?

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
