It's been quite a while since we first got word of Amazon's Lords of the Rings TV series MEGADEAL, and we have some exciting updates! The new head of Amazon Studios, Jennifer Salke, is already divulging a few exciting tidbits about how it's all shaping up. "All of us would love a big, addictive show that is executed at the top of its game," Salke told The Hollywood Reporter in June. As such, the company is dotting every "i" and crossing every "t" to ensure a truly epic adventure. "We are currently talking to writers. I have sat with three or four different groups of writers," Salke said. "My hope would be to put together a group of talented people, which will obviously have a leader who can embark on this big ambitious endeavor."
