TV: Discworld Series The Watch

"Terry Pratchett fans may want to stay close to a television screen over the next couple of years," Deadline advised in reporting that the late author's classic Discworld book series "has become his latest work to be snapped up for a small screen adaptation. BBC Studios is developing a six-part series based on the long-running epic novel series."

Simon Allen (Strike Back, The Musketeers) is writing the series, which has a working title of The Watch, and BBC Studios is "looking to set up the show as a returnable franchise," Deadline wrote, adding that BBC is "eyeing the adaptation as a major international co-production. It is co-producing the series with Narrativia, the production company founded by Pratchett in 2012 and now run with Pratchett's daughter Rhianna and his former business manager Rob Wilkins."
