Earthsea Fantasy Books Being Developed for Television
A24 and Oscar-nominated producer Jennifer Fox (Nightcrawler, Michael Clayton) are teaming to develop Ursula Le Guin’s acclaimed Earthsea fantasy books for television. A24 is the studio and will finance the series project, which will be shopped to networks soon. The book series, which has drawn comparisons to J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings saga, is composed of five novels and eight short stories set in a fantasy archipelago of hundreds of islands, imperiled by those who use magic to gain power and upset its delicate balance.
