MTV Orders Full Shannara Series!

The Shannara series is officially coming to TV! MTV has picked up a full 10-episode season based on Terry Brooks’ 1983 classic, The Elfstones of Shannara. Miles Millar and Al Gough are writing the show, and Terry Brooks took to his site to praise their adaptation, saying that he “really couldn’t be happier with how it’s all coming together, and I am very much involved in the process.” Jon Favreau, who was initially slated to direct, is staying on as executive producer. The first two episodes will now be directed by Jonathan Liebesman, currently in post-production on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. We look forward to the day when we complain that “MTV doesn’t even play epic fantasy series anymore, man.”
