My friend Bill Perry (officially known as William E. Perry) sent me the following bit of news about “The Legend of the Seeker,” an upcoming miniseries based on Terry Goodkind’s first novel. I’ve not read any of Goodkind’s work, but Bill tells me that he’s an Objectivist.

Terry Goodkind’s first novel Wizard’s First Rule is the basis for the mini-series “The Legend of the Seeker.” The Sam Raimi of Spiderman fame is the executive producer. The series is syndicated so times and stations vary, but it is on WGN, so most cable systems will have it.

The series starts the weekend of November 1, but an introduction with footage from the first episode starts October 18. It is called “The Making of a Legend” and is hosted by Lucy Lawless. Local listings for the introduction and the series are available here.

While Goodkind was not an Objectivist when he wrote the novel he has been closely involved in the production and I’d anticipate that the non-Objectivist portions have been fixed. I have read all of the novels and have followed the publicity about the making of the mini-series and am extremely excited about watching the upcoming series. Even if you haven’t followed the series I’d recommend watching for anyone who likes fantasy shows, or even Objectivists who aren’t really fans of the genre. I wasn’t before I discovered the series.

I’m definitely planning to watch it!
