Syfy Set To Adapt Novel The Magicians Into A Series
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.10.2014

Deadline reports that Syfy has given the greenlight to a pilot for The Magicians, which is based on Lev Grossman's fantasy book trilogy. If picked up, it would be a one-hour drama series from Universal Cable Productions. The pilot will be written by John McNamara (Prime Suspect) and Sera Gamble (Supernatural) with Michael London and Janice Williams producing.

The books have been published in 22 countries and include The Magicians (published in 2009), The Magician King and The Magician's Land. . They follow a group of young adults in New York who study magic and find that the fantasy world they read about when they were kids is actually real and could threaten mankind.

This is the second attempt at a TV adaptation for the books. FOX acquired the rights in October 2011 thanks to London, who would have produced at that time as well. It would have been written by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (Thor, X-Men: First Class). Grossman wrote on his blog at the time that he was disappointed it didn't go forward but it would be shopped to cable networks. The story for the Syfy version starts earlier in the book series than the FOX attempt.
