So what happened to Terry Pratchett's Unseen Academicals?

The Pratchett adoptations usually came out around easter, and they promised the next one for 2013. So, does anyone know anything?

I've been wondering the same thing over the last couple months. I loved the others and was really looking forward to more Discoworld this year.

Re: So what happened to Terry Pratchett's Unseen Academicals?

From what I've read it looks like the rights to Terry Pratchett's work reverted back to him and he has started his own production company, overseen by his daughter. I believe they're now making a series called The Watch based on the City watch series.

I too have read about that, but noone mentioned these two things being exclusive! dammit... There is NEVER enough Pratchett.

Well the press release said the rights to all works belong exclusive to his company now, so I assume they are.

I'd heard about The City Watch series, but I hadn't heard about the right reverting. Makes sense though.
