'TORTALL UNIVERSE' SAGA
TO BECOME EPIC TV SERIES
Here's your fantasy treat for this week: as 'Deadline' reports, Lionsgate and Playground Entertainment have bought rights on Tamora Pierce's TORTALL UNIVERSE saga and will turn it into a massive epic TV series.
Spread across more than 20 books and short stories, the story is set in Tortall, a kingdom populated with lords and ladies, knights and sorcerers, and where few people are lucky enough to possess magical gifts.
Tortall and its surrounding countries is a medieval fantasy universe, the home of an interesting assortment of heroes. There is military danger from neighbours like northern Scanra, eastern Tusaine, and worst of all, imperial Carthak in the south, with its ever hungry slave culture and its greedy mage emperor. Pirates from Carthak, Scanra, and the Copper Isles haunt Tortall’s eastern shores. In a country both large and sparsely policed, there is always a risk of conflict, be it from rebel nobles, the impoverished people of the eastern hills, or the barely vanquished Bazhir tribes.
