The Wertzone: A DISCWORLD City Watch TV series in the works

The Wertzone: A DISCWORLD City Watch TV series in the works:
"Terry Pratchett has signed a deal with Prime Focus Productions to bring the 'City Watch' subset of his Discworld novels to television. The deal will allow for an ongoing TV series featuring new adventures and episodes based on the Ankh-Morpork City Watch, commanded by Sam Vimes and made up of a mixed group of humans, trolls, werewolves, vampires, zombies, golems and dwarfs. Exactly how this will work - whether they'll start with an adaptation of Guards! Guards! or a new introduction - is unclear at present."

This can be real good or horrible, a good cast and "mature" writing and this can be a fantastic series with lots of legs (no pun intended). I think it will all depend on how greasy they make Nobby Nobbs.

In more good news, work is progressing on the SKY adaptation of Pratchett's Unseen Academicals. And the next Discworld book (Snuff) is coming in October.

Ahhh. I was looking for a reason to live.
