LA-based Nucleus Media Rights has signed a licensing deal to adapt fantasy author Jeff Wheeler’s Kingfountain book series for TV.
The series of fantasy novels follow the exploits of a little boy who is taken hostage by his father’s enemy, intertwining elements of Dungeons & Dragons with real-world history, magic and myths.
Under the licensing deal, Wheeler will be involved in the creative side of the show’s development, with production expected to begin next year.
“Jeff is a well-established master at storytelling and character development. We are thrilled to partner with him to bring the exceptional Kingfountain landscape to life on television screens,” said Bruno Zarka, CEO of Nucleus Media Rights.
