Report: Netflix & Amazon Are Fighting For a “Lord of the Rings” Show




It looks like the next blockbuster original show from Netflix or Amazon may be a “Lord of the Rings” series.

According to a report from Variety, author J.R.R. Tolkien’s estate and Warner Bros Television are in talks with Amazon for the rights to the show. Deadline later added that they have a source that says Netflix has also been approached about the project.

Sources say Warner Bros Television is hoping to find a streaming service in an effort to build off HBO’s “Game of Thrones” success. They are hoping “Lord of the Rings” with its similar period and style will give them their next big hit.

Right now the show is still in early production, and it is reported that no deal is done at this time; however, according to all reports Warner Bros Television is determined to find a partner for their new show and will keep looking until they find one.
