”As part of the effort, Amazon made a mega deal for a Lord Of the Rings TV series and is developing a slew of high-profile titles, including The Dark Tower, Wheel of Time, Ringworld, Lazarus and Snow Crash.”
Since that initial article there hasn’t been any follow up articles that didn’t use that brief mention as the source, nor has there been any official confirmation from Amazon or anyone related to the shows….until now!
Tal Yguado, Head of Genre at Amazon tweeted this yesterday:
Glen Mazzara is the Showrunner for the Dark Tower show.
Tal Yguado is Head of Event Series at Amazon, She was tasked with the development and production of big scope, big event genre series — hourlong science fiction, action, fantasy and horror series.
The above retweet by Sharon Tal Yguado has since been deleted from her account, but @clubstephenking on twitter have posted this:
“Amazon contacted us to tell us that the project is well under development, but has not yet received the green light.“
