With Netflix serving up some truly stunning content in recent years, now comes word on a project that could prove to become a huge favourite of many a genre fan.
Bringing together Arrival and Bird Box’s Eric Heisserer and Stranger Things’ Shawn Levy, the on-demand streaming service are adapting Leigh Bardugo’s Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows novels as an eight-episode series titled simply Shadow and Bone. Heisserer is on writing duties and will serve as executive producer, while Levy is acting as producer. Similarly, Bardugo will be acting as executive producer alongside Heisserer, with the Arrival scribe also serving as showrunner.
The official blurb this reads:
In a world cleaver in two by a massive barrier of perpetual darkness, where unnatural creatures feast on human flesh, a young soldier uncovers a power that might finally unite her country. But as she struggles to hone her power, dangerous forces plot against her. Thugs, thieves, assassins and saints are at war now, and it will take more than magic to survive.
Expect more on Shadow and Bone as we get it.
