MTV is looking for its own Game of Thrones.
The Viacom-owned cable network is teaming with Jon Favreau and Smallville duo Al Gough and Miles Millar to adapt Terry Brooks' international best-selling fantasy novels Shannara, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. From Sonar Entertainment, the development deal comes with a straight-to-series commitment, so should network brass like the script, the fantasy drama would bypass the traditional pilot stage.
Anyone remember when MTV actually had music videos? I have a bad feeling about this.... they had better not have Allanon and Shea sitting on a couch, commenting on music videos.
