    X-MEN: FIRST CLASS and THOR Writers to Adapt MAGICIANS Novel for Fox Drama Series

    Though I would’ve thought the novel would head to the big screen, Deadline has word that Lev Grossman’s fantasy novel Magicians will actually head to TV for an adaptation of the material into a potential drama series on Fox. The network has made a script commitment from X-Men: First Class and Thor co-writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz who will adapt the story that is essentially a polished, upper-class, more mature Harry Potter which follows a group of twenty-somethings who study magic, but don’t learn until later that a magical world from some of their favorite childhood stories actually exists. The novel honestly seems a better fit for TV, if only so fans of the book don’t have to worry about their favorite parts being cut out as was the case with several of the Harry Potter films. Michael London (Milk), Shawn Levy (Real Steel) and Michael Adelstein are producing the series which will hopefully get picked up for the 2012 fall TV season. For a more detailed synopsis of Grossman’s novel, hit the jump.

    Here’s the synopsis for Lev Grossman’s Magicians:

    Quentin Coldwater, a Brooklyn high school student devoted to a children’s series set in the Narnia-like world of Fillory, is leading an aimless existence until he’s tapped to enter a mysterious portal that leads to Brakebills College, an exclusive academy where he’s taught magic. Coldwater, whose special gifts enable him to skip grades, finds his family’s world mundane and domestic when he returns home for vacation. He loses his innocence after a prank unintentionally allows a powerful evil force known only as the Beast to enter the college and wreak havoc. Eventually, Coldwater’s powers are put to the test when he learns that Fillory is a real place and how he can journey there.

    4 episodes for a show that underperformed like that is an eternity. They had high hopes for that. But it proves you can't just recycle what was a really bad idea that 'caught fire' back in the day and expect the same magic to happen.
