Studios invite Joanne Rowling to produce new show
Warner Bros. Studios is not giving up hope of reviving the Harry Potter franchise after the failure of the Fantastic Beasts and Where They Live film series. A television series based on the works of writer J.K. Rowling is reportedly about to go into production.
It is expected that the project will consist of seven seasons, each of which is based on one of the books by J.K. Rowling. Warner Bros. hopes the series could be one of the cornerstones of a new streaming strategy to be announced next week by parent company Warner Bros. Discovery.
Sources say CEO David Zaslav and HBO head Casey Bloys have been persuading Joanne Rowling to produce the new series for quite some time, but the deal has yet to be finalised.
The series would have allowed the writers to delve deeper into the world of the Harry Potter books, some of which are over 500 pages long. Recall that Warner Bros. Studios had previously made a feature-length film of each of the seven books so far, culminating in a two-part film project based on the latest installment.
Warner Bros. representatives have so far declined to comment on the matter.
