Sam Raimi, Director of the Spiderman Trilogy, is teaming up with ABC Television, to bring an ambitious series for the fantasy genre.
Wizard's First Rule, targeted for a fall release, is an adaptation of the book The Sword of Truth by Terry Goodkind. The story is about a simple woodsman and a Wizard, and their quest to rid the world of a tyrant.
Raimi and ABC TV partnered to bring back the genre to which Hercules and Xena became well-known. It will be a 22 episode-epic and production will begin in May.
