Maggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Cycle is Coming to Television

According to Publishers Marketplace, Universal Cable Productions has acquired the television rights to Maggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Cycle, described as being “about four private school boys and a psychic’s daughter who quest for a sleeping king of Welsh legend in the mountains of Virginia, uncovering ancient magic, powerful dreams, and the devils in themselves.” Executive producers will include Michael London (Sideways, the upcoming HBO adaptation of Jennifer Egan’s A Visit from the Goon Squad) through Groundswell Productions; Andrew Miller, known for The Secret Circle, who will adapt the book series as EP and showrunner; and Catherine Hardwicke, who is also attached to direct the pilot, and who directed the first Twilight film.

Stiefvater tweeted the announcement this morning, saying, “I thought this was still a secret, but I GUESS NOT ANYMORE.” As we wait for more details, check out Lee Mandelo’s four-part essay on The Raven Cycle, and tell us your dream casts!
