ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Tolkien fans take notice. Amazon says it will bring “The Lord of the Rings” to the small screen.
The company announced Monday that it has the global television rights to create a TV series based on the fantasy novels by J.R.R. Tolkien. Set in Middle Earth, this TV series will explore new story lines preceding Tolkien’s “The Fellowship of the Ring.”
No word yet on a launch date or cast but Amazon says the deal includes a potential additional spin-off series.
