Now THIS could be fun...

Now here's a lovely idea - I do hope it works out (and then makes it to the US - this would be FUN).


Pratchett Gives Thumbs Up to Discworld Cop Show
Logan Westbrook | 15 Mar 2011 15:00

One of the most unique fantasy worlds around is about to get a big infusion of new stories.

Sir Terry Pratchett has signed an agreement with TV production company, Prime Focus, to create a Discworld TV show, based on the adventures of Ankh-Morpork's City Watch. Pratchett's Discworld books have inspired a number of spinoffs, including miniseries and videogames, but this will be their first time as an ongoing TV show.

The city of Ankk-Morpork is a little like the real world Budapest, in that it is technically two cities very close together. On its cobbled streets walk humans, dwarves, trolls, golems, vampires, humans who think they're dwarves, werewolves, and a whole host of other fantasy races. The City Watch, under the able command of Samuel Vimes, has the difficult task of keeping some kind of order in the city.

The Harrigan family agrees. We do hope it gets here quickly through BBCA or some such.
Happy Dance

It'll be interesting to see what they come up with. It could be a lot of fun if they get it right. ;)

And no doubt they're probably cleaning up after that irritating wizard Rincewind...again.
