Stephen King's The Eyes Of The Dragon Gets Pilot Order From Hulu

There is simply no way to slow Stephen King down. It has just been confirmed that yet another King novel will be adapted into a series and this time, it's more child-friendly. King's The Eyes of the Dragon has just been given the pilot order on Hulu.

The report comes from Deadline, which confirms that a pilot for the book will be developed by Hulu. In addition to that, It: Chapter Two executive producer Seth Grahame-Smith will write the first episode and will serve as showrunner. Smith and his KatzSmith partner David Katzenberg will also serve as executive producers with Bill Haber, Roy Lee, and Jon Berg. The pilot is expected to be produced by Fox21.

Smith is undoubtedly delighted to work on the new project.

"I am so excited to be working in the world of Stephen King with Hulu, which has such a terrific track record with Stephen King adaptations," he said. "The goal for this series is to feel unlike any Stephen King adaptation before, with this rich underlying source material, and the only true fantasy book he wrote that has kings and swords and princesses. We will honor the spirit of the book and the legacy."

The Eyes of the Dragon follows the path of two princes and the magician who wants to control their destiny. Basically, it's like Game of Thrones with the manipulative advisers but none of the nudity. Oh, but there is at least one dragon. Unlike most of King's works, the novel delves into fantasy instead of horror.

Casting and production start dates have not yet been confirmed. Stay tuned for more updates on the series.
