Lord of the Rings Franchise Gets TV Spinoff

Lord of the Rings

Lord of the Rings

Tolkien did write many stories of Middle Earth that take place in eras prior to the adventures of Frodo, Sam, and the fellowship.

Netflix and HBO had also been in contention to acquire the show from author J.R.R. Tolkein's estate, but Amazon ultimately won out in one of the most expensive acquisition deals in history.

Elijah Wood starred in the big-screen adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's book trilogy, 'The Lord of the Rings, ' which will now serve as the basis for an Amazon multi-season TV adaptation.

Lord of the Rings is huge, yet people we left feeling a little bit cheated after Peter Jackson's subpar Hobbit trilogy.

Missouri Deer Harvest Numbers Down Slightly Opening Weekend
Past year hunters checked 96,131 deer during the opening weekend of the 2016 November portion of firearms deer season. In Zone 2, which covers the majority of the state and runs from Canada to Iowa, harvest was up 6 percent.

According to Amazon's announcement, the studio's television adaptation will explore new storylines, a possible spinoff series, based on the period preceding The Fellowship of the Ring.

The new multi-season series is Amazon's attempt to find its own mega-show like "Game of Thrones, said Sharon Tal Yguado, the head of scripted series at Amazon Studios".

As of now, Amazon has been pretty good with it's Originals but this series will be far beyond the scope of anything its studios and partners have attempted. The deal also includes the opportunity to pursue spin-off series. The big-screen version of the trilogy earned almost $6 billion worldwide, and the final entry, "Return of the King", won the 2003 best picture Oscar. These new TV shows will be produced in cooperation with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, book publisher HarperCollins and Warner Bros. That's $250 MILLION...just to secure the rights.

Whenever Amazon's Lord of the Rings series arrives, it will be available exclusively to Prime members.
