TV: The Kingkiller Chronicle

Showtime is developing a television series based on the Kingkiller Chronicle book series by Patrick Rothfuss that is being produced by Lionsgate, with Lin-Manuel Miranda executive producing and John Rogers (Leverage, The Player) as showrunner, Deadline reported. Miranda also will compose music for the project, which is "a subversive origin story set a generation before the events of the trilogy's first novel, The Name of the Wind."

The Kingkiller Chronicle "is a collaborative franchise from Lionsgate that includes a TV series adaption, a major feature film and interactive games all being developed concurrently," Deadline noted.

Miranda said, "Pat Rothruss' Kingkiller series is some of the most exciting storytelling I have ever read."
