Which novel would you most like to see adapted into a TV series and who would you want as the showrunner? From chrismouse
Hmm that’s tough because most of the novels I’d like to see as TV series, are already movies or have been on TV. I honestly can’t think of… wait. I know. It’s not a novel. Actually I’ve got two.
First one:Anne McCaffery’s Dragonriders of Pern
I cannot remember when I first read this series, other than I was still in middle school and it was Lessa’s story which isn’t actually the first book. But it was a great introduction. I fell in love with Pern and the idea of dragons and just… It was a great world for a young girl to visit.
For years we’ve been teased with the idea of a movie for this and they have just never come through. I’d love to see it on the small screen instead because I think with the advances (hey look at what they’re doing with The Librarians!), we could just get SO much more with the series. I think a lot of little stories instead of one over reaching big one would be awesome.
Second one:Mercedes Lackey’s SERRAted Edge
(and this is a weird link because not all of these are actually IN the series I read.) Specifically the Tanniam series.
Anyway. Elves? Magic? Misfiring mages? Totally awesome! I love urban fantasy and this fulfills all of it. I’m just sorry she stopped writing them.
So those are my two choice. And for showrunner on both of them, the team of Dean Devlin and John Rogers because of course, who else would I choose?
