    Raimi's 'First Rule' gets greenlight

    ABC/Disney show to bow in all top 50 markets

    March 16, 2008

    Sam Raimi's syndie original "Wizard's First Rule" is set to bow in all of the top 50 markets in the US.

    The ABC/Disney show, based on the "Sword of Truth" books by Terry Goodkind, is greenlit for 22 episodes and will begin production in May.

    Now it looks like the action/fantasy show will preside over a nonfictional kingdom, as well: "Rule," which is sold station-by-station, has been cleared in 84% of the country in the not quite six weeks it's been on sale.

    The weekly hourlong series follows Richard Cypher, a young man who makes his living leading people through dangerous forests, as he investigates the murder of his father and finds himself opposing Darken Rahl, the son of an evil wizard.

    Goodkind's popular novels, first published in the mid-nineties, span 11 volumes so far.

    "Wizard's First Rule" will be shot in HD.

    Sounds interesting. Although Disney's "Wizards of Waverly Place" stinks to high heaven, maybe they will do a better job by adopting something rather than create it themselves. I wonder if this is Disney's Franchise for something Harry Potterish?

      Interesting - I would have thought this would have been made into a movie - actually a series if it took off - same with the George R. R. Martin books

      I do sell out of these titles all the time so it's very popular
