Fantasy author Terry Pratchett was known worldwide for his magnum opus “Discworld”.
The work is made up of just over 40 novels written over 30 years, which tell different sagas and stories developed in a fantasy world where Pratchett, with wit and humor, parodied and satirized various aspects of modern life.
Variety reports that Narrativia, a production company founded by Pratchett himself, has made a deal with Motive Pictures and Endeavor Content to develop a series of television adaptations, but without specifying the books to adapt.
Rhianna Pratchett, co-director of Narrativia and daughter of the writer: commented: “Discworld has unique characters, its ingenious narrative and incredible literary tropes, and we feel that this should be brought to the screen in a way that my father would be proud of.”
Pratchett’s work is no stranger to adaptation, the best known being “Hogfather” for the BBC and the adaptation of “Good Omens”, a novel written with fantasy author Neil Gaiman.
