Disney’s Searchlight Television is developing a brand new series based on the N.K. Jemisin’s fantasy book series “The Inheritance Trilogy”.
This series is envisioned as an epic, live-action ongoing fantasy series. Searchlight TV is searching for a writer, director and crew for the upcoming series.
“The Inheritance Trilogy” consists of three books:
The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms
The Broken Kingdoms
The Kingdom of Gods.
The official description for this trilogy states:
A young woman becomes entangled in a power struggle of mythic proportions.
A REALM OF GODS AND MORTALS.
Yeine Darr is an outcast from the barbarian north. But when her mother dies under mysterious circumstances, she is summoned to the majestic city of Sky. There, to her shock, Yeine is named an heiress to the king. But the throne of the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms is not easily won, and Yeine is thrust into a vicious power struggle.
The series will be executive produced by David Boorstein, who is the SVP, Head of Scripted TV at Westbrook Studio, along with Westbrook’s Co-President, Head of Television, Terence Carter, who said the following on this project:
“N. K. Jemisin is one of the most creative and prolific fantasy novelists of our time. Her epic storytelling and fierce, powerful character work render complex, multicultural worlds that truly stand out in a genre too often painted with a monochromatic brush. We’re excited to partner with the team at Searchlight to bring her incredible, award-winning trilogy to life on screen.”
Searchlight’s VP of TV Development Danny Samit and Gina Kwon, Head of Development and Production, will oversee the project for Searchlight TV.
It’s not currently known what platform or network this series is currently in development for.
