Hello - I did a search, and no thread on this yet: Why Amazon Thinks You Want to Watch a 'Lord of the Rings' TV Show (or Five) Amazon just bought the TV rights to 'Lord of the Rings.' The article I linked talks about multiple series set in Tolkien's world. It also addresses the potential for 'fantasy overkill' after the successes of the LOTR films (in spite of the inferiority of those Hobbit movies,) and 7 seasons of Game of Thrones. Other things I've read make it sound like what's planned is back story stuff set prior to 'Fellowship of the Ring,' but I wonder if a miniseries reworking of the original trilogy might someday be in the cards. Anyway, this seems like it will be a long way off, but the price of $200-250 just for the rights means they will probably want to get something on the air as soon as they can.
