Looks like MTV is getting into the Swords and Sorcery business. This video was shown at Comic-Con 2015.
The Shannara Chronicles is a 10-episode series that’s set to screen in early 2016. If it’s a hit, there’s plenty of material for more episodes; it’s based on an epic fantasy by Terry Brooks, who has published somewhere north of 30 (30!) novels in the series. George R. R. Martin, please take note.
I haven’t read any of the 30+ books, lacking, as I do, both any great interest in epic fantasy novels and an attention span longer than seven minutes. But I do love Game of Thrones (the TV series) and Lord of the Rings (the movies.) I’ll have to find where MTV is on Comcast’s channel grid, because I’ll be checking this out.
BTW, “I remember when MTV played music videos.” = “I’m really old.”
