Set in Middle Earth, this TV series will explore new story lines preceding Tolkien’s “The Fellowship of the Ring.” The deal includes a potential additional spin-off series, Amazon said Monday.
“The Lord of the Rings” canon was named Amazon customers’ favorite book of the millennium in 1999. The three films directed by Peter Jackson earned a combined gross of nearly $6 billion worldwide.
No launch date or cast members for the new series was announced by Amazon. (AP)
