MTV has ordered Shannara to series with a 10-episode order. You can read Deadline's report here.
There's a sentence I never thought I'd read.

Yeah, really. Maybe it's going to be Shannara: The Rock Opera. But does MTV do anything musicaly related at all anymore?

I've only read one of the Shannara novels, and that had to be more than thirty years ago, but it seems like it would make for a good series. I might check it out, depending on how it looks.

I think MTV might occasionally show music videos for like an hour or two in the early morning.
MTV does seem like a weird choice for Shannara, but after Teen Wolf I'm willing to give them to the benefit of the doubt when it comes to genre shows.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

Isn't there a musical fantasy coming up this season? Anything is possible.

I wonder how long before MTV rebrands so that they're no longer associated with music. They could call themselves "Um...TV?"

They already have, it's just "MTV" now, they've officially dropped "Music Television" from it. It's just us old farts that still think of that.

TNT has renewed Falling Skies for a fifth (and final) season and The Last Ship for a second season. TNT has ordered 13 episodes for the second season of The Last Ship, up from the first season's 10-episode order.

On a similar note, BIO, (re:The Biography channel) has rebranded itself as FYI.

I like that show, but this is for the best. It won't drag on too long and we will hopefully get a nice conclusion.

Three cast in Killjoys


Aaron Ashmore (Warehouse 13), Luke Macfarlane (Brothers & Sisters) and British actress Hannah John-Kamen (The Hour) have landed key roles in Killjoys, an original space adventure drama being produced for Syfy and Space.

From the producers of Orphan Black and penned by Lost Girl creator Michelle Lovretta, Killjoys follows a fun-loving, hard-living trio of interplanetary bounty hunters sworn to remain impartial as they chase deadly warrants throughout the Quad, a distant system on the brink of a bloody, multi-planetary class war.

I like Ashmore, so I'm glad to see him getting a new gig.

A Space Opera and a Westworld series. Both sound promising.

I like AI stuff, so Westworld sounds pretty interesting.
I've been wanting some new space opera, so I'm also looking forward to Killjoys.
