Terry Pratchett’s Discworld to be a 6-part miniseries

When I was younger my dad was always recommending books that he thought I would enjoy reading, and one of the series that he suggested was Discworld by Terry Pratchett. I still have not had the chance to settle down with any of these wonderful books, but I did get the chance to see two of the films adaptations; The Color of Magic and Hogfather.

The working title for the new miniseries is The Watch and is rumored to be written for BBC Studios by Simon Allen. BBC Studios is co-producing the series with Narrativia, a production company that Pratchett founded in 2012 that is now run by Pratchett’s daughter, Rhianna, and his former business manager Rob Wilkins.

For those who are unfamiliar with Discworld and are wondering if the series might be of interest, all I can say is if you love a good dose of humor with your fantasy you most definitely need to take a look at this series. The setting, Discworld, is a world that is a flat disc balanced on the backs of four elephants, and those in turn balance on the back of a massive turtle.

City Watch is one of the major story-lines of the Discworld series and is a whodunit series that focuses on the city watch of largest city-state in Discworld, Ankh-Morpork. I will be very interested to get the chance to see this series when it is finished, and hope that my finances will be to a point by then that I can watch it without resorting to waiting until months after its release to see it.
