Default Shannara series to MTV

In one of MTV‘s most ambitious moves on the scripted side since Susanne Daniels became president, the network has given a script-to-series commitment to Shannara, a drama series based on Terry Brooks’ popular fantasy books. The project, from Sonar Entertainment and Farah Films, has Iron Man helmer Jon Favreau on board to direct and will be written by Smallville creators Al Gough and Miles Millar. The trio will executive produce with Brooks and Dan Farah (The Crow remake). If MTV likes the script, it is expected to give the project a straight-to-series order. favreauShannara reunites Gough and Millar with Daniels, who developed and put Smallville on the air while she was entertainment president at the WB. “I am thrilled to be working with the Smallville creators Al and Miles again along with the amazingly talented Jon Favreau,” Daniels said. “We feel that the Shannara novels are a perfect fit for MTV as this type of fantasy genre has continuously proved to resonate with our audience.” Shannara is set in our world, thousands of years after the destruction of our civilization. The story is centered on the Shannara millargoughfamily, whose descendants are empowered with ancient magic and whose adventures continuously reshape the future of the world. The first season of the potential series will be based on The Elfstones Of Shannara, the second title in the series — a fan favorite accredited with cementing the series place in the fantasy world. The book series features plenty of young-adult adventure and romance to suite MTV’s target demographic. Shannara also would be compatible with MTV’s only successful drama series so far, Teen Wolf, which also has supernatural elements.

Love Shannara world, but not so sure about MTV.

They're the ones footing the bill, so unless someone else wants to....

The only thing funnier than watching stupid people argue is watching smart people argue.
Who the **** makes a movie and while planning it is like, "you know what this some Greg Kinnear."

First time hearing about this franchise, sounds very interesting. Teen Wolf is a pretty awesome show, MTV can pull this off.

Wow, I hope something good happens with this. I remember this series as a teen and the later novels as an adult.

The new Teen Wolf is very well done so I hope this is of the same quality.

Now if only AMC or Starz would develop the Thomas Covenant series.

I'm very conflicted. On one hand we are finally get a Shannara series. On the other hand it is on MTV...

I remember when I thought it would be a great idea to have a Sword of Truth TV series...That went well.. not so much.

No high hopes here for this.
